Real sports gaming platform Game Theory has successfully raised $2 million in a Pre-Series A funding round. The funding comes from a variety of sources, including Rainmatter, a start-up accelerator fund founded by Zerodha, Indian tennis player Rohan Bopanna, WEH Ventures, Prequate Advisory, and angel investors like Balakrishna Adiga.
Game Theory’s co-founders, Sukrut Gejji (COO), Saket Gejji (CTO), and Sudeep Kulkarni (CEO), all hail from St. Paul’s High School in Belagavi. While Sudeep had a shorter tenure at St. Paul’s, Saket and Sukrut completed their SSLC education at St. Paul’s School in Belagavi.
The funding will be used to further develop Game Theory’s technology, with a focus on building skill-based matchmaking, establishing coaching products, and expanding the reach of smart sporting facilities across the country. The ultimate goal is to bring the joy of playing sports back into people’s lives.
