MOGO Executes Definitive Agreement with Nils Lahr and OrionsWave to Acquire Social Challenge Engine and Platform Technology
Mobile Global Esports Incorporated (MOGO) (NASDAQ:MGAM), the mobile eSports and social platform company driving collegiate eSports tournaments, team development and data services in India, today announced that the company has executed the definitive agreement to acquire, implement and relaunch the social challenge technology developed by Nils Lahr and OrionsWave LLC.
“I’m thrilled about the prospect of bringing specific social stories to life,” the founder and Chief Executive Officer for OrionsWave LLC, Nils Lahr, said. “Unlike the ad-hoc nature of Instagram or the instant gratification of TikTok, our original app, which was number-one on the app store before these platforms emerged, catered to a unique category that is still unaddressed in the market. Our aim is to add more value to social connections and infuse more fun into viral calls to action. With the advancements in technology and user experience, we’re poised to bring a fresh and exciting perspective to the market.”
“Moving forward with OrionsWave’s social challenge technology provides the robust technological backbone required for building out the capabilities, value and offering of our MOGO social platform,” the Chief Executive Officer for Mobile Global Esports Incorporated, Dave Pross, said. “We’re looking forward to working closely with Nils and his team to drive gamer engagement through offering users the ability to create challenges with which to motivate player and team unity and competitiveness.”
Lahr, an esteemed American entrepreneur and computer scientist, has made significant strides in the digital media and artificial intelligence (AI) industries. As the founder and Chief Executive Officer for OrionsWave, LLC, he has guided early-stage companies to success including Orions Systems Incorporated and Synergy Sports. His tenure as Reality Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft showcased his expertise in AI scalability. Holding over eight key patents in machine learning and AI, his innovative approach led to Microsoft’s acquisition of Orions Systems Incorporated in 2020.
Lahr also co-founded Synergy Sports Technology LLC, a global leader in sports analytics, which recently had its IPO. His Emmy-award-winning work in streaming media has significantly influenced the digital transition of major corporations. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
