Ugami has raised $4.8 million in seed funding alongside the closed beta for their Ugami Debit Card and linked app. The seed round was led by Harlem Capital Partners and ULU Ventures. FJ Labs, Origins Fund, and Top Corner Capital also participated.

“We couldn’t be more proud to support Ugami and their mission to become the leading financial card for gamers,” said Henri Pierre-Jacques, Managing Partner at Harlem Capital. “The interest already secured is incredible and speaks to Ugami’s talent and dedication to their vision.”

The Ugami Debit Card App will launch with a number of features. These include:
