GameOn, a San Francisco, CA-based artificial intelligence (AI)-powered chat platform, raised $35 million in Series B funding, bringing the company's total funding to nearly $54 million.
The round was co-led by Mirae Asset Venture Investment, Mighty Capital, and B3 Capital. Other investors in the round include the Wilf family, owners of the Minnesota Vikings, and Milwaukee Brewers majority shareholder Mark Attanasio. Venture capital firms Quest Venture Partners and Great Point Ventures also took part in the round.
The funding will deepen GameOn's footprint in sports and scale a range of technical, business development, and marketing efforts to catapult GameOn forward into more diversified verticals like retail, creating new, sustainable revenue channels for the world's leading consumer brands.
“We’re excited not only to continue to scale up our foothold in the sports industry but also increase our reach and influence over the chat space as a whole,” said Alex Beckman, chief executive, and co-founder of GameOn. “Chat has always been used as a defensive tool, but there are over three billion people chatting every day. “GameOn has unlocked the chat experience and turned it into an offensive, revenue-generating machine for a wide variety of teams and industries to develop a deeper and more substantial relationship with their consumers.”
GameOn is used by teams like Arsenal F.C., the Milwaukee Bucks, and the Las Vegas Raiders; and is backed by dozens of athlete investors including names like NFL legend Joe Montana, NBA Hall of Famer Gary Payton, NBA players Andre Iguodala and Mo Bamba, and more.
