EarlyGame enters a new round of funding and offers private investors the opportunity to invest. A contribution in our own cause.
EarlyGame, the eSports and gaming platform, is opening up to private investors for the second time and is once again offering its community the chance to get involved in the gaming investment sector as part of a crowdinvesting campaign on Seedmatch. After the first round was already a complete success, the company is now looking forward to new investors in the EarlyGame family.
The platform delivers opinions, background reports and highlight content for eSports fans, hobby gamers and professionals. Founded in September 2019 by Fabian Furch and Leopold Ingelheim, the Munich-based start-up is already operating globally despite its short existence.
“EarlyGame’s vision is to build the most important eSports and gaming brand for the mainstream fan,” says founder Fabian Furch. The community is at the heart of the company and blew away all growth projections in 2021. In December alone, more than 3 million unique users were reached on the platform. This represents a 100 per cent increase year-on-year.
EarlyGame ahead of profitability in 2023
In addition to the strong user growth on the platform, a big step forward was also made in the area of monetisation: Compared to the previous year, revenue was increased by over 300 per cent.
On social media, the company now has more than half a million fans. This increases EarlyGame’s reach by another 25 million every month. With the EarlyGame Awards in favour of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, the biggest German gaming community awards of the past year were once again set up. The donation turnover could be doubled here.
The still young start-up already has its sights set on profitability in the coming year. The first profits should already be recorded then. With a turnover of more than 20 million euros and about 30 million monthly users, EarlyGame wants to reach new dimensions by 2026.
In order to continue the development at this pace, the platform will once again be open to private investors and their own crowd on Seedmatch.de from 5 May 2022. This allows fans to invest in the project and shape the future together with EarlyGame.
publishers recognised the potential of EarlyGame and the entire gaming sector early on. The publisher increased its shares again in 2021 and now holds just under 40 percent of the company.
