We are reassured and encouraged by the fact that WePlay Ventures, a leading game-focused investment company in Turkey and Europe, with valuable know-how and network in the AR/VR field, B4YO, and Lima Ventures, which specializes in targeted investments in their fields, including successful exits in the gaming industry, will be our running partners.

By strengthening our capabilities with new investors who will join us in the Series A round, which we plan to complete by the end of the year, we aim to become one of the early-adopter names in the AR Glasses industry.”
