PortalOne recently announced it secured $15 million in the seed round of funding. Some of the main investors are Atari, ARRI, Founders Fund, TQ Ventures, Coatue Management, Rogue Capital Partners, Signia Venture Partners, Seedcamp, Talis Capital, and SNÖ Ventures out of Europe. Other individuals that led this round include Twitch co-founder Kevin Lin, Blizzard and Dreamhaven co-founder Mike Morhaime, Riot Games co-founder Marc Merrill Xen Lategan, and Eugene Wei, the former head of Video at Oculus.
“One of the benefits of building first is that what we are doing is extremely hard to do on a technical level,” said co-founder and CEO Bård Anders Kasin. “The way we do it is the key. It is our secret sauce.”
