THE POWER OF CONNECTIONS

We believe in the power of personal relationships to make big things happen and not just in your business.

Engaging our networks within the cyber community on behalf of our companies is what we do every day. We like to nurture new relationships and share the insights we learn. We are eager to help both those entrepreneurs who are part of our portfolio and those who are just connecting to us in search of guidance. Entrepreneurs know these connections make them more successful and can enable them to scale their companies more quickly. It’s what we know makes us different from other cybersecurity investors.

During our venture careers, our team has made thousands of connections for our entrepreneurs with CISOs, board members, go-to-market partners, integrators, co-investors, the intelligence community and the government.

We know cybersecurity. It’s all we invest in. And we care about making the world a more secure place to live.

How We Help Companies

 
 

Mojo Networks is the global leader in comprehensive cloud Wi-Fi solutions. The company’s award-winning family of products and cloud services combines a true carrier-class multitenant cloud architecture with breakthroughs in Wi-Fi location, user analytics, social engagement, manageability, ease of deployment, and cost effectiveness, as well as Mojo Networks’s longtime top-rated WIPS technology. Mojo Networks’s global customer base includes leading enterprises in the government, financial, technology/telecom, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and hospitality sectors.

Trident invested in Mojo Networks’s Series A round in May 2004. The investment was based on Trident’s thesis that there is a need for differentiated technology to secure wireless networks against attacks. Prior to investment, Trident helped the company rebrand to Mojo Networks as well as recruit a go-to-market executive team to partner with the founders to scale the business globally.

After the investment, Trident took an active role in helping shape the company direction. They encouraged the company to build a broad patent portfolio, cloud management capabilities, analytic insights, channel relationships and further bolstered the team with a public company COO and CFO.

 Today Trident is the largest shareholder after leading the Series B and Series D rounds.
