Foundation Value for Next Phase
by Achieving Key Milestones
- Series A
Mogility is a multi-faceted venture firm bringing capital investment and operational business support to select Seed and Early-Stage companies, focusing on innovative technologies and solutions. Mogility’s Active Investment Management Model mitigates early stage investment risk by complementing the existing management team of its Partner Ventures, providing the experience, capabilities and resources necessary to execute short-term milestones and maximize the likelihood of success.
The key for any new business is access to the right contacts at the right client with the right offer.
Mogility brings a successful track record of growing early stage revenue through direct sales and indirect channel partnerships. Mogility and its network of contacts bring access to client prospects that build an active sales funnel designed to close deals that are best for your business.
Technology created in a lab is cool. Technology sold to clients makes money. A product roadmap must reflect market demand.
Intelligent and market-driven product definition, pricing, promotion, and placement are essential to any successful product launch. To stand out from the crowd, Mogility helps its Partner Ventures create and manage products and services based on the realities of the highly competitive and rapidly evolving technology marketplace.
Bad operational process causes inefficiency, wasted resources, late delivery and, ultimately, failure. Good process is the means by which the business meets client needs and drives profitable revenue growth. Mogility works with its Partner Ventures to ensure that the operations of the business further—and don’t hinder—the business of the business.
Legal & IP
Growing business ventures are confronted with countless complex legal issues that they must get right the first time. This includes properly structuring business transactions and fundraising agreements, proactively safeguarding intellectual property rights, crafting effective client and partner agreements, and managing everyday legal matters and regulatory requirements unique to new media technologies and businesses, such as privacy and data security matters. External law firms can be a huge drain on resources, yet ad-libbing vital legal matters to avoid cost is a recipe for failure. Mogility’s in-house legal resources protect the vital interests of our Partner Ventures.
The goal for every Mogility Partner Venture is to graduate from the “early stage” ranks, whether through Series A Funding or an M&A transaction. Mogility has significant experience finding the best opportunity and then negotiating and closing the most favorable deal.
