Conference
DEMOfall 07
Market Segment
Consumer Software and Services
Funding Details
In May 2007, mig33 announced a Series A funding round of $10 million co-led by Accel Partners and Redpoint Ventures, with substantial contribution from Technology Venture Partners, to expand its mobile phone based global communications service.
Competitors
No direct competitors. Secondary competitors include companies that offer similar pieces of the mig33 service like Jajah, Rebtel, Yahoo! Mobile, Google Mobile.
Product Description
mig33 is the first carrier and handset-agnostic global mobile community bringing the power of the Internet and community together for anyone with a mobile phone. It offers VoIP calls, IM, chat rooms, text messaging, content sharing and social networking and adds mobile-based e-mail and an integrated Website. mig33 is in beta in more than 200 countries, with more than six million people sending 20 million messages and sharing thousands of photos every day.
Market Opportunity
With more than two billion mobile phone users around the globe, mig33 already has more than six million of them connecting to and using Internet communications through their mobile service. For most international users where broadband has not saturated the market, mig33 is the first and only Internet connection.
DEMO Says
Already enormously popular abroad (six million users and counting), we’re happy to help introduce mig33 to a U.S. audience. With the intent of giving an engaging mobile Internet experience to anyone with a phone, anywhere in the world, mig33 brings VoIP, email, IM and chat to users in one streamlined, downloadable application. Fully operational on about 50% of the phones in existence (all J2E and J2ME), mig33 is a prime candidate for wresting the mobile applications sector from the monolith carriers and delivering it directly to users. As bigger fish like Yahoo! and Google continue to deliver their own solutions to the problem, it will be interesting to see how innovative upstarts like mig33 round out the competitive picture.
