p As mobile developers and publishers wrestle with how to keep users engaged with their apps, Mavin Motion co-founder and CEO Shailesh Nalawadi said it’s time for new strategies.The startup started by building engagement products for mobile apps in India, but today it’s announcing its U.S. launch — as well as a $3 million seed round from Mousse Partners and Montane Ventures.Yes, there are other platforms that can help app makers send push notifications, emails and SMS messages to their users, but Nalawadi said that most app engagement campaigns have “a very long cycle,” where messages are planned out well in advance.Mavin, on the other hand, is designed to support “very topical” messaging.Nalawadi (who was previously a product manager at Google) told me that just as a social media marketer at a company like Oreo can capture eyeballs and headlines by jumping on breaking news, mobile marketers bring users back to their apps by staying topical.Mavin says its products include a dashboard where marketers can create push campaigns using a drag-and-drop interface, as well as 100 different options for engagement incentives (like vouchers and cash rebates).
