Griffin Gaming Partners Launches $750 Million Gaming and Web3 Fund


Griffin Gaming Partners, a venture capital firm specializing in gaming-related investments, has revealed the launch of its second gaming-related fund. The fund, which was reportedly oversubscribed, managed to raise $750 million to support gaming initiatives, including Web3-based and blockchain endeavors. Griffin Gaming Partners has now amassed more than $1 billion AUM.

Griffin Gaming Partners Raises Significant Gaming-Related Funds

Griffin Gaming Partners has announced the launch of its second gaming-related fund, which will focus on investing in seed and growth cycles of companies dedicated to creating blockchain-based or traditional games. The fund, which was reportedly oversubscribed and raised $750 million, is one of the largest funds dedicated to investing in interactive entertainment.

According to numbers coming from the firm, gaming has become a ubiquitous form of entertainment, surpassing movies, music, and books combined. Per reports, the sector is expected to grow by 248% over the next decade. This opportunity is what is said to fuel Griffin Gaming Partners to aggressively invest in the industry.

Peter Levin, one of the firm’s founding partners, clarified how these funds will be spent. In an interview with Forbes, he said:

We’re not a spray-and-pray fund. We’re not going to have 70 companies in the portfolio at any given time. We’re going to continue to take that disciplined approach.

With this investment, the company now has more than $1 billion in assets under management, including numbers from its first fund, which reportedly raised $235 million in November.

Web3 and Metaverse Growth

While numbers suggest interest has seemingly waned when it comes to metaverse and NFTs recently, companies are still betting big on the future of this blockchain-based technology that can be applied to gaming. The firm has already put funds behind these companies, with investments in Alethea AI, a protocol that allows users to create smart NFTs, and Chill Chat, a Solana-based metaverse gaming platform.

However, Griffin Gaming Partners also invests in groups that are not classified as gaming companies and that sit at the intersection of other technology and gaming. This is why the company has already invested in initiatives such as Discord, the messaging company, which is not a game but a company adjacent to the game.

According to Nick Tuosto, managing partner of the firm, these complementary investments give Griffin Gaming Partners the ability to bolster its gaming reach. He further stated:

Our thesis is simply that through our focus and dedicated analytical capabilities, we can make sense of massive amounts of data and see around corners.
