  • Arpan Desai

Hello LinkedIn Family, We are approaching the end of 2022, and we have some really interesting updates. We always look forward to your suggestions, feedback & questions. We continue to focus on the system integrator roles for platform-first, API-first & infrastructure companies.

FinTech / Building Blocks: MobileFirst team is working on multiple FinTech use cases in lending, account reconciliation, personal finance, and integrated finance in logistics products. We are building payment rails & B2B AP/AR solutions. Our partnerships & experience with companies like Marqeta, Codat, Plaid, Stripe, ACHQ, and others help do large-scale solutions. At this stage, we have started investing heavily in compliance, security (SOC 2) & Privacy (SkyFlow) aspects.
SportsFirst: We have been working with multiple SportsTech startups & enterprises. We have decided to grow SportsFirst as an independent vertical. We will have a dedicated team & experts working on this. Our approach is similar to Venture Studio / Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) model with SportsFirst. We believe to make a sizable impact, will require collaboration, partnerships, and innovation with an industry-focused approach.
OnFlow/ ReBlock: Our journey in Blockchain is maturing as we ship more dApps. We recently got selected in the top 15 Flow Blockchain ambassadors. Flow blockchain powers the world's most successful commercial NFT campaign NBA TopShot. We are working closely with Flow, 5ire & Polyon's enterprise blockchain teams.
OpenAI & ChatGPT: OpenAI's ChatGPT is the talk of the town & its applications are endless. If you have not tried it, please give it a go. Our team is working on integrating these APIs to build new edge applications. It can result in endless possibilities in creativity & customer experience (CX). These platforms help the common person visualize & experience the power of AI for the first time.
We continue to work closely with engineering managers & product managers at high-growth companies. We will love to schedule a chat if you have any references in startups or SDKs. scheduling link:
We put a lot of thought into what goes in this email newsletter & make it relevant. We always look forward to your suggestion, questions & feedback.
p.s - Although, we love ChatGPT. I am still handcrafting & sending a personalized email to you.
