MOBLI – Giving You A Place To Share You
Mobli was an Israeli technology company initially founded as a photo and video-sharing platform in 2011. It had a promising product and showed great potential with millions of downloads and high-profile investors like Toby Maguire, Serena Williams and Leonardo DiCaprio. Mobli’s goal was to gain a dominant social following and then be acquired by Google or one of the social media giants.
The fast success of Instagram and its acquisition by Facebook in 2012 was a major setback for Mobli. Nevertheless, it went on to develop other products and in 2017 sold its Geo photo filter patent to Snap for $7.7million.
Mobli was among Rakishev’s first tech investments as an international venture capitalist. He was one of the company’s three lead investors.
