Lowkey, a gaming start-up that builds software for streamers, recently announced they closed a $7 million round of Series A funding. This influx of money will help the company create a video editing tool that lets gamers post short snippets on social media.
This round of funding was led by Andreessen Horowitz. Others that participated include Figma’s Dylan Field, Loom’s Joe Thomas, Plaid’s Zach Perret, and William Hockey.
“Gaming has always been like a huge passion,” said CEO Jesse Zhang. “The simple purpose of Lowkey is to share moments from games in the same way that you can share moments from your life. When something cool happens in real life, you just whip out your phone, and it makes it so easy to capture it.”
Lowkey’s desktop app is available on Windows and their new mobile app is now live on Apple devices. Lowkey has over one million active users to date.
