Buzz Capital Commits to Start-ups
Buzz stated that this investment showcases their commitment to start-ups and the business sector, helping these companies to find the investment to scale.
“The games sector is one of the few industries to have made huge gains during Covid as more and more people embraced video games during the various lockdowns to pass the time and remain connected to friends and family. It’s an ambition we will continue building on over the coming months.” – Adam Betteridge, COO at Buzz Capital
