If you’re a mobile app maker, chances are user acquisition is one of your biggest concerns. Sure, you’re probably also worried about funding, resources, technical challenges, and what have you. But all of it is for naught if you can’t get eyes and fingers on those touchscreens.
Well, there’s an accelerator for that. The Mobile-Only Accelerator, MOX to its friends, is especially interested in helping startups get over this particular hurdle.
MOX is a program by SOSV, a US-headquartered venture capital firm that invests in seed- and growth-stage tech startups. The difference is, it’s doing so through its own accelerators. The firm also operates IndieBio for biotech, Urban-X for smart cities, Food-X for restaurants, HAX for hardware, and Chinaccelerator for internet software.
DemystData’s mission is to use its data platform to build credit profiles for people who are not part of the banking and credit system. The idea is that through its app, the New York-headquartered startup can pull on a variety of sources to create a profile that allows the user easier access to financial services.
