MotionMobs is a mobile-first app development company headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.
In episode 4 of Ignite Alabama, Taylor Wyatt, co-founder and president of MotionMobs, talks about starting MotionMobs in 2010 with her co-founder, Josh Grenon, and how the company has grown over the past 5 years.
The focus of our conversation is on the importance of planning, whether you're developing an app or launching a new business. We also talk about the benefits and challenges of growing a tech startup in Alabama.
Other topics include:
- Connecting with investors and other methods of funding a startup.
- Education with the focus on tech education and the role of traditional 4-year college degrees for tech careers.
Josh Grenon left MotionMobs and Birmingham in 2011 to move to the San Francisco area and Taylor purchased his interest in the company at that time. Taylor has since expanded the leadership team of MotionMobs and grown the company significantly over those years.
According to a recent update by the Birmingham Business Journal, MotionMobs is preparing to open a second office in the Atlanta area.
