Florida Funders invests in gaming startup
November 20, 2020 -
Florida Funders has invested an undisclosed amount in Artie, a Los Angeles-based next-gen gaming start-up. Artie has technology that lets game developers bypass app stores and their fees, Florida Funders said in a news release. It lets consumers play mobile games that they discover inside social media platforms like Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter without leaving the app. The gaming industry is exploding and Artie is shaking up the status quo, Tom Wallace, managing partner of Florida Funders, said in the release. Florida Funders, based in Tampa, is a hybrid of a venture capital fund and an angel investor network. The organization has fully deployed its first fund and recently launched Florida Funders Fund 2 LLC.
