The capital raised will be used by Mogi to strengthen the product & make it more scale-able & robust. Along with this, the startup plans to expand its footprint to tap the overseas market.

Speaking of the fundraise, Founder & CEO Vikrant Khanna said “80% of the traffic on the internet is video, and content consumption is booming across all sectors ranging from OTT, Media & Entertainment, Short format Video apps, Education or Health care. However, consumer retention continues to be a challenge for content platforms. From a tech standpoint, there are 3 fundamental reasons for this i.e.buffering, poor video quality & the fact that the video delivery workflow is highly complex & fragmented. This leads to sub-optimal user experience & churn.”
Mogi’s Co-Founder & CTO Rahul Lahoria says “Mogi’s patent-pending technology delivers buffer-free videos of enhanced quality while compressing their size by 50%. This means not only is the end-user experience par excellence but even for the video platform their streaming costs get reduced by 50% while customer retention goes up.” Mogi’s innovative solutions lie in 3 buckets – Core Video tech, Image tech, and white label solutions for OTT & Ed-Tech industry. The pandemic has seen a dramatic rise in the consumption of OTT content & even in the e-learning sector as students have been indoors.
