Gamestream raises 3.5 million euros

Gamestream raises 3.5 million euros

In a context of strong growth in its international activities, Gamestream has completed a new fundraising in the amount of € 3.5 million in order to strengthen its position as world leader in Cloud Gaming solutions in B2B. As part of this round table, Gamestream called on Eponyme Partners (Arnaud Perez). Supported by historic shareholders, including the server specialist 2CRSi, this fundraiser is an opportunity for Gamestream to bring in new investors, including telecoms specialist Ronny Verhelst, who joins the company’s board of directors, and the brothers Remo and Philipp Bienz, owners of the Revier Hotels chain. This new investment allows Gamestream to strengthen its development teams and accelerate its content acquisition strategy by enriching its current catalog with new flagship titles.


A “Success Story” made in France
Founded in 2015 by Ivan Lebeau and Olivier Lebigot and launched commercially in 2019, Gamestream has risen in less than two years to the rank of world leader in streaming video game solutions (Cloud Gaming) for the B2B market. The start-up provides telecoms and hospitality professionals (hotels, hospitals, etc.) with its turnkey and “multi-device” solution (TV, smartphones, PCs and tablets).Gamestream offers an optimal gaming experience in Full HD and 4K, giving unlimited access to a catalog of video games from the main publishers on the market (Disney, Capcom, Codemasters, etc.), designed for an environment ranging from the general public to the midcore gamer. “


Dazzling international development
In one year, Gamestream’s services have been rolled out in white labels in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, with IT sector leaders who offer their subscribers unlimited access to a recent game pack for less than 20 dollars a month. This is the case of Etisalat (1st telecom operator in the United Arab Emirates), Telkom Indonesia (1st operator in Indonesia), Sunrise (1st telecom operator in 5G in Europe) or Medion (1st PC brand in Germany). The Accor hotel chain, for its part, has just selected Gamestream’s services for the lobbies and rooms of several of its establishments. Gamestream currently employs 30 people across its various sites (Paris, Nancy, Dubai), and plans to double its workforce within two years. The company will soon open a branch in Asia (Taiwan).
