Prior to Moshir Venture Partners, Moshir founded PatchLink Corporation, the global leader for security patch and vulnerability management solutions, where as CEO and chairman he was instrumental in managing PatchLink to record revenue as well as achieving one of the largest rounds of funding in the "patch management" technology sector, totaling $40 million. Moshir's professional focus is now directed on further pursuing and expanding Moshir Venture Partners, and other entrepreneurial goals. Moshir will remain an active member on the PatchLink board supporting the security company's growth strategy.
According to Moshir, "It is an exciting time to focus on the wireless/mobile technology space. Having delivered on my early vision of what enterprise patch management could become years ahead of competitors, it seemed logical to take my expertise and leadership into another highly dynamic and rapidly growing technology sector."
Moshir Venture Partners will focus its initial equity funding activities on the following market segments: mobile/wireless communications software and services, and online media and entertainment broadcasting, among others.
In addition to his management and leadership roles at PatchLink, Moshir has been widely recognized over the past several years, receiving annual honors from industry and business publications such as Network World, Network Computing, Software Magazine, IT Security, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Inc. In 2003, he and PatchLink were honored by the Governor of Arizona with the Arizona Technology Council Innovator of the Year Award for the successful leadership of innovative product development and strategic management of global growth. Most recently, Moshir served as a judge for the nation's leading SIIA software competition, the CODiE Awards 2006.
