16 December 2015 Taipei, Taiwan — SOSV, the Accelerator VC, today announced the launch of MOX, a mobile-only accelerator joining its family of five world leading global accelerators to disrupt and innovate in mobile-first markets. Companies receive an initial $500,000 USD of free promotion through our ad platform and can instantly monetize in regions all over the world.

“The last ten years has been about the first billion people online, the next ten will be about mobile nations and consumers who encounter the internet first on a mobile phone,” says William Bao Bean, Investment Partner, SOSV. “MOX is focused on enabling entrepreneurs from around the world to tap into this mobile-only opportunity. No other accelerator has the ability to optimize, test and promote at the magnitude and speed that MOX can.”

Sharing best practices from Chinaccelerator, we bring collective insights and a network of our team, partners, investors, alumni, and 300+ mentors of which over 60 are mobile experts to assist the best startup founders in the world.

“We are very pleased to join MOX and help entrepreneurs from around the world and Taiwan go global,” says Paul Wu, CEO GMobi. “We look forward to bringing top global talent to Taiwan and to further develop our industry and ecosystem.”

Batch 1 of MOX will be an 8-week program based in Taipei, Taiwan and is open for applications. The program kicks off January 4th followed by demo day March 3rd. Following a lean, data driven approach MOX companies can leverage a significant distribution platform to localize, test, and fine tune platforms, services and apps across multiple markets. Unlike app stores, MOX only requires a MVP and allows companies to gain early consumer insights because they can perform daily or even hourly updates to drive faster optimization and unparalleled growth.

Applications for MOX are open and can be made via applications@mobileonlyx.com.
