The ChilliConnect team are excited to announce the completion of a Seed Investment round of over $450,000 raised from TechStart Ventures, Ascension Ventures and existing angel investors.
Our core product, the ChilliConnect platform, a SaaS (software as a service) offering providing game developers and publishers with a single solution to a range of Live Game Management services including analytics, game backend services and live operations has already attracted a growing list of successful global customers.
Following the Seed Investment round we have plans for significant growth across the business. Dedicated sales and marketing capability has already been added and we are now seeking to double the size of our current development team. Our ambition to democratise Live Game Management for all game developers regardless of shape, size and financial resource is now one small step further forward.
CEO and co-founder Paul Farley said “We are delighted to conclude our Seed Investment round. Not only will these funds allow us to accelerate the development of the ChilliConnect platform, developing innovative Live Operations and Game Backend services, we can now market the platform to an even larger range of potential customers. Having access to the knowledge and networks of both TechStart Ventures and Ascension Ventures is a massive benefit. We’re looking forward to working with these top drawer early stage funds.”
Mike Herron, CTO and co-founder added “We’ve already demonstrated we can deliver a world class service with a small team, now we have the opportunity to maximise our positioning and become one of only a handful of key players in this space. In addition to developers and publishers we fill a large hole in the technology stack of distribution platforms, engine providers and other complementary technology companies. We’re looking forward to realising this potential in the months ahead.”
