French publisher Homa has raised $100m to invest in tech, strike new partnerships and engage in strategic acquisitions.
The Series B round was co-led by Quadrille Capital and Headline, with Northzone, Fabric, Bpifrance, Eurazeo and Singular also participating.
The company has only been running since 2018, but co-founders Daniel Nathan and Olivier Le Bas have already raised a combined $165m, after its $65m Series A round a year ago. The company now employs over 160 people, and claims that games ‘powered by Homa’ have been installed over 1bn times. Homa is also collaborating with Sorare to make web3 games.
“The new fundraising round will support Homa in scaling the business through investments in tech and data products, tapping into a global talent pool, executing on new partnerships, and doing strategic acquisitions,” said the company on its blog. “Homa Lab will be a key area of investment, with significant releases expected to add further value to the creators’ toolkit in the coming months.”
Homa co-founder and CEO Daniel Nathan added: “This new round of funding is a testament to the boundless ambition of our team. Homa’s technology is helping game studios of all sizes elevate their potential, starting by working on the right idea, speeding up production, making better decisions with data, and distributing their app across the world. We are excited to help many more studios and to connect players with amazing gaming experiences.”
