Awon GameZ, an online mobile-app based gaming platform, has raised $2 million in its seed round led by family offices.
The funding proceeds will be used to ramp up and expand its product portfolio, deepen its market reach, and hire global talent, said Awon GameZ in a press release.
Founded by Amardeep Bajpai, Awon allows users to play skill-based and real money games including fantasy cricket, rummy, and poker with the option of hosting an audio chat and video conferencing with their friends to create a real-life personalised experience.
The startup is also working towards creating an online gaming platform for children. It looks to launch gamification according to goals and preferences of users and will introduce an online marketplace that serves the needs of the gaming community.
