About us

services Photo timeline prototype from 2011

Mazira was founded in 2011 by a group of scientists and engineers who met while working at the University of Iowa. The company evolved out of an idea to address the need for a better personal photo and document management tool, using technology previously developed by co-founder Ross Johnson.

While further developing this technology, with mentorship from the University's John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (JPEC), the team realized that aggregating, structuring, and visualizing data was a poorly addressed problem in the corporate IT landscape. Recognizing the potential, the team switched focus to developing a core set of technologies to address large-scale data & document processing. This tool set has since rapidly evolved into the Mazira Engine, now in version 2.0.

Originally located in JPEC's Bedell Entrepreneurship Learning Laboratory, Mazira is now headquartered at the Iowa City CoLab operated by the Iowa City Area Development Group.

Mazira has won numerous business model and business plan competitions, including receiving top prize at the 2012 Pappajohn New Venture Business Plan Competition.
