Campbell, Calif., Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Mojio – the leading technology platform and SaaS provider for connected cars – announced that it has closed an oversubscribed Series B funding round. Mojio raised $40 million USD in the round, including strategic investments from Assurant, the world’s leading provider of vehicle protection services and extended warranties; Bosch, the top tier-one supplier to the global automotive industry; and T-Mobile, America’s fastest-growing wireless company.

Mojio's expanded portfolio of investors will fuel Mojio's global growth with a blend of financial support and industry expertise. Innogy Ventures, Iris Capital, Telus Ventures and Trend Forward Capital joined the round’s lead financial investor, Kensington Capital. Mojio also secured re-investment from the Series A round syndicate, including Amazon Alexa Fund, BDC IT Venture Fund, Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners and Relay Ventures.

“These strategic investments underscore the close partnership we have with our investors and the confidence they have in our people, products and vision for an increasingly connected life,” said Kenny Hawk, CEO of Mojio. “With this additional funding, we’re able to accelerate our efforts to support the entire automotive ecosystem in delivering smarter, safer and more convenient car ownership experiences to the global driving community.”

More than 470 million connected vehicles are expected to be on our roads by 2025, and the massive potential of monetizing the data generated by those vehicles will result in a $750B+ USD industry by 2030. This has led to a need for secure, scalable software solutions. With backing from leading automotive, IoT and telecom brands, Mojio’s oversubscribed series B funding round validates the company’s leadership position in the emerging connected mobility space. Mojio will use the funding to invest in the talent and technology required to meet the evolving needs of Mojio’s enterprise customer base, which includes Assurant and nine mobile network operators across six countries, with more to launch in 2019.

Today’s announcement marks another major milestone for Mojio: in the last six months, the company was ranked the 2nd fastest-growing tech company in Canada by Deloitte and debuted two jointly developed connected mobility solutions with Bosch; the first at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, and the second at NAIAS 2019 in Detroit. Mojio also announced the launch of three new customers, including Metro by T-Mobile, T-Mobile Poland and Assurant, and is a finalist for “Best Mobile Innovation for Automotive” at the upcoming 2019 Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards, as part of the MWC Barcelona event later this month.
