Ravensburger is investing €4m into the Polish crowdfunding start-up Gamefound.
Gamefound is the first company to receive funding from Ravensburger’s innovation and investment program, Next Ventures.
The goal of Next Ventures is to provide support to start-ups looking to successfully launch products and services that ‘fit thematically to Ravensburger’s business sectors’.
“With Gamefound, we are investing in a strong team of founders with industry expertise; a start-up with extremely high potential in our core segment of board games,” said Thomas Bleyer, Group Director Corporate Development & New Business at Ravensburger.
Gamefound was soft-launched in 2021 and has already hosted more than 30 crowdfunding campaigns, which have raised over $22m in total funding to date.
Ravensburger will work with Gamefound strategically and operationally to support the platform’s successful positioning in the market.
