The funding will support SuperScale in expanding its market-leading services aimed at enhancing commercial effectiveness throughout a game’s entire infrastructure. Notable investors in the round include Venture to Future Fund, Across Private Investments, and Zero One Hundred.
- Founded in 2015, SuperScale offers a comprehensive Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) analytics platform that enables game developers and publishers to identify revenue-boosting strategies.
