Shotcall picks up $2.2 million to let fans game with their favorite streamers – TechCrunch
The company today announced the close of a $2.2 million seed round led by Initial Capital, New Stack and Lerer Hippeau . Some streamers host games with their subscribers, but organizing them can be tedious at best, and monetizing them is nearly impossible. With Shotcall, streamers can engage with their fans in a way that not only gives that fan a chance to really connect with them, but that also creates more high-quality, shareable content. “Fans are at the center of the entire global value chain in the gaming world,” said Gentle. Thus far, Shotcall has amassed around 350 active hosts and more than 4,500 fans have been active on the platform in the past two months.
