The year was 2010 and the Apple AppStore was just one year old. It was the early days of the mobile revolution. Sensing a seismic change toward mobile, we hunted down and bought two significant domain names in the industry: MobileApps.com and MobileAds.com.
Soon enough, mobile technologies transformed the way everyone conducted their daily business. First, we launched MobileApps.com and took seed funding from a public-listed company in Japan. Somehow, that did not turn out well and we had to shut it down.
We pivoted to the online advertising world with the launch of RichMediaAds.com.
It was, and still is, a rich media ad creation platform for the desktop and mobile web.
As mobile advertising started to gain momentum, it was time to switch gears. We developed an entirely new platform for the global in-app mobile advertising world using IAB-standard, MRAID2.0 specifications.
One of our early cofounders returned to become an angel investor. We registered a business entity in Japan. November 2013 saw the launch of our new startup, MobileAds.com.
