MOX | Mobile Only Accelerator


MOX is a global accelerator for cross-border mobile internet, operated by the US$855M venture capital firm SOSV–the world’s most active investor according to PitchBook and PwC. Notable alumni include video publisher network Flickstree, which powers video content for Samsung and Xiaomi; AI English pronunciation assistant ELSA, the first investment in Asia by Google’s Gradient Ventures; and vertical search engine BigGo, which is rapidly expanding in seven countries with over 12M monthly active users.


MOX helps mobile startups from around the world to acquire users for free – our goal is customer acquisition cost zero – and to monetize these users and drive higher lifetime value. Our network of MOX startups cross-promote each other and receive free promotion from our network of partners in return for revenue share. We help startups expand into the world’s fastest-growing markets in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Middle East, South America, and Eastern Europe.

There are lots of accelerators but few with our operational expertise and institutional knowledge. MOX is a part of SOSV, the Accelerator VC, with over US$700M under management investing through its six global accelerators and a lab. SOSV founded Chinaccelerator, the first accelerator to launch in Asia 10 years ago and the first and only active accelerator to have a unicorn go through its program in Asia – Bitmex Batch 8 Fall 2015. MOX leverages SOSV’s institutional and operational experience managing multiple accelerators over the last 10+ years to bring a wealth of knowledge on how to best run an accelerator.

MOX has a wide breadth of relationships and partnerships throughout the region; our partner ecosystem includes smartphone brands, mobile telcos, ad networks, media companies, real estate firms, financial institutions, retail outlets, and mobile content providers in Southeast Asia, India and beyond. MOX partners promote our startups, helping them scale up quickly after they achieve product-market fit and are able to generate consistent revenues.

Twice a year MOX hosts Growth Week featuring some of the brightest minds on product and marketing in the region, including our experts-in-residence, amazing mentors and alumni startups sharing best practices, case studies and workshops.

Intensive 1:1 mentorship from over 350 serial entrepreneurs, corporate leaders and battle-hardened VCs. Learn one on one from the perspectives of those who have been there and done that, failed but then succeeded.
