Since 2015, Braavo has been committed to supporting the growth of mobile app brands around the world. To date, we’ve invested over $1 billion in funding to help our clients earn tens of billions in ARR across hundreds of millions of unique subscriptions. Our commitment to supporting the entire app ecosystem goes beyond funding. We believe a more educated and successful subscription app community is beneficial for the entire ecosystem. And with that, we are pleased to introduce our latest effort in supporting our mission: the Braavo Founder in Residence (FIR).
What exactly is a Braavo FIR?
A Braavo FIR is an accomplished mobile app leader that we bring in-house to serve as an expert resource for our portfolio companies and broader subscription app community. Passionate about giving back, each FIR works on a variety of initiatives to bring their expertise, insights, and sweat equity to the masses. And in collaboration with Braavo, our FIRs commit to creating opportunities, resources, and tools that help ambitious mobile brands grow.
