Hedge Fund Manager Lead a $2.5m in Series B Funding for Gameface MediaA group of prominent individual investors including successful entrepreneurs, hedge fund managers and venture capitalists from Boston, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area provided a $2.5 million in series B funding for Gameface Media Inc., the largest provider of free amateur sporting event photos in the world.
Gameface Media plans to make strategic investments in product development, sales, marketing and client services with this round of funding.
Gameface Media delivers unique branded images of participants looking their best whether that be ripping down a mountainside, running through a wall of fire or finishing a marathon. Rather than charging as much as $60 for these images, Gameface Media provides all photos for free to participants thereby creating authentic social content that generates millions of impressions for brand marketers and event organizers. The Company has received positive feedback from event directors and participants alike at top race events including the San Francisco Marathon, Warrior Dash, Shamrock Run Portland and Rugged Maniac.Source: VentureFizz
