Today, we are very excited to share the news that we’ve raised $35M, testament to the hard work and accomplishments of the Scopely team to date — and the beginning of the next chapter for us!
The Series A financing was led by Evolution Media Partners, a joint venture with TPG Growth, Participant Media, and Evolution Media Capital, and Highland Capital Partners. We also are proud to welcome two strategic investors to our advisory board: Rick Hess, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner of EMC and Evolution, and Andy Hunt, Partner of Highland Capital Partners and Co-Founder of Warby Parker.
Since we opened our doors in 2011, we’ve gained more than 35 million loyal fans who catapulted four consecutive iOS games to #1 on the App Store charts. With the additional capital, we will be able to expand our games library and can continue building the world’s premier touchscreen entertainment network.
We will continue to strive to empower our partners to achieve success, and earn the loyalty and love of millions of people who will play our games for years. We couldn’t be more excited about 2015 and the promise it holds for Scopely.
