“During our weekly Twitch streams, I often get asked where the money to run Proletariat and fund World Zombination comes from. I’m happy to shed light on the topic, as we are lucky to have partnered with excellent investors to close out our Series A round of funding. This is also a great opportunity to talk about our goals and how we got here…

How much did you raise?

We raised $6 million led by Spark Capital, along with FirstMark Capital and Atlas Ventures. Rick Heitzmann of FirstMark Capital is joining the board with Nabeel Hyatt from Spark Capital, Proletariat’s CTO Dan Ogles, and myself.

Why these investors?

Spark Capital is a no brainer. They invested in Oculus during the seed stage and have been involved in massive startup successes including Twitter and Tumblr. Their portfolio and the specific experience of Nabeel Hyatt brings so much to the table.

FirstMark Capital has extensive experience in games, and their early involvement with Riot on League of Legends gave me tons of confidence in their knowledge and foresight. This investment is valuable to us in many ways beyond the investment dollars.”
