The new batch is composed of startups that hail from India, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Malaysia. They operate in govtech, publishing tech, edtech, direct-to-customer retail, and logistics sectors, according to a statement.

Each startup will receive USD 100,000 to USD 120,000 in funding from SOSV—the US-based VC firm that runs MOX.

Here are the ten startups that are part of MOX’s eighth cohort:
