The Mobile App Industry is growing in Northern New Jersey and Pervasive Group, the startup in Montclair behind MMGuardian Parental Control, is an example of the trend. Read the piece by Mary Diduch:
Paul Grossinger, vice president of strategy of Clifton-based Pervasive Group Inc., which also completed TechLaunch, plans to convert his company’s child-monitoring Android app for parents — MMGuardian — to a subscription model around $2.99 a month.
“Building awareness is definitely something we’re working on,” Grossinger said.
Grossinger said the company made connections with investors and advisers in New Jersey that may not have been possible in more saturated markets, like New York.
“There’s a lot of potential for companies to get together and get off the ground quickly,” he said.
Landau, who grew up in Teaneck, is optimistic about the app industry’s future as people increasingly rely on mobile devices.
“I think the mobile market is here to stay,” he said. “What form going forward is anyone’s guess.”
