CEO and co-founder Tim Edwards explained: “Our interactive Quiz Kits have proven to be very popular across Twitch and other streaming services, as well as in pubs and bars across the globe, but our vision is much broader and ambitous. We needed to find a partner that could help us deliver that mission and Haatch was the perfect fit,” he enthused.
“The team as they have so much experience in growing early stage tech and understand the value of our market positioning better than any VCs we spoke to. We can’t wait to get started.”
And whilst terms of the deal were not disclosed Haatch has invest a six figure number in the business to give it the fuel it needs to launch multiple new products to market.
Explaining the rationale behind deal Haatch Partner Mark Bennett went on: “We rarely come across such bright, motivated founders in exciting spaces like this and it was clear from day one that there were few more experienced in interactive video space than Tim and the team.”
