GauG, which operates the community platform “GauG” for gamers, announced on November 24 that it has raised a total of 40 million yen through a third-party allotment. The underwriter is Monex Ventures. The funds raised will be used to strengthen marketing to acquire new customers, including hosting e-sports competitions, and to strengthen recruitment of development personnel and internships in order to improve GauG’s services.
GauG is a platform that allows you to create and manage profiles as a gamer or team, as well as recruit friends and team members, distribute and announce events on the bulletin board. It is also possible to enhance profile information by reflecting the online play data of the game. In November, we released a tournament function that allows us to host and manage tournaments as a new service, and we also provide automatic tabulation through data linkage.
Established in October 2021, GauG is a startup whose members are all hardcore gamers. We are developing GauG to make it an easy-to-use and exciting community platform for gamers. It also hosts the e-sports tournament “GGT” (GauG Tournament).
