BITKRAFT Portfolio Company, Quarterback, Raises $2.5M To Help Streamers and Pros Monetize Their Downtime
Today we announced that we lead Quarterback’s $2.5M round which included participation from Crest Capital Ventures, Deep Space Ventures, UpWest Labs and angel investors. Quarterback, an esports fan engagement platform for streamers, professional players and teams, will use the funding to further develop the platform and accelerate the company’s growth globally. We are optimistic about the impact Quarterback will have on the esports industry.
Quarterback is a first-of-its kind platform that enables streamers and professional players to continuously engage with their audiences by creating their own fan-club gaming leagues. These leagues can host daily challenges, give away prizes, compete against other clubs worldwide and offer other perks. Being able to foster engagement with the gaming community around the clock, not just when streaming, will help create a new revenue stream while simultaneously boosting community involvement.
