Atlanta-based gaming platform and marketplace Shotcall announced Wednesday that it has raised a $2.2M USD seed investment led by Initial Capital and New Stack and closed by Lerer Hippeau.
The startup, which was founded in 2018 by Gordon Li, Riley Auten, and Thomas Gentle, is an alumnus of Techstars Seattle Accelerator Class of 2020. Shotcall developed a marketplace as “an avenue to schedule and monetize any kind of community event hosts desire to hold including tournaments, coaching sessions, Q&As, queue lines, charity events, one-on-one competitions, and more.”
Shotcall revealed that it will use the investment proceeds to grow its marketplace platform to integrate with more game publishers and to expand hosting opportunities with more celebrities and artists.
Furthermore, Ken Lamb, co-founder of lead investor Initial Capital became a member of Shotcall’s board of directors.
