Playgiga · Acquired by Meta (Facebook)

Our support is proactive

Founder and CEO at Playgiga, Javier Polo: “We were on the hunt for visionary investors, the kind who thrive on taking risks and are fueled by a bold mission. The entire industry had failed 5 years ago. We had a very different vision of how to approach Cloud Gaming, both in terms of commercial strategy and from a technological standpoint. We needed an investor with the foresight, capabilities, and commitment to join us on this journey. Criteria Venture Techwas with us from the beginning in 2013, when we began to build a technology that was unique in the market, operating at a fraction of the cost of our competitors. Thanks to an innovative go-to-market strategy through Telecom and Media Operators, we built a global footprint and grew to millions of euros in revenue before their grand acquisition by Meta in 2019.”

Criteria Venture Tech: “In Criteria Venture Tech we’re not just your run-of-the-mill investors. When we spot genius founders who are experimenting with game-changing concepts, we dive in with more than just the bucks. It's a hand-in-glove partnership, where we roll up our sleeves, leveraging our battle-tested experience from scaling tech companies around the globe. But it's not just about growth; it's growth providing the guidance on how to scale consciously.”
