wooga Raises 5mm euro round - Balderton Capital. Social Gaming, the next bubble?


Wooga creates social games for networks like Facebook. Founded in January 2009, wooga GmbH is based in Berlin, Germany
Wooga, a Berlin-based social gaming company, has raised €5 million in new VC funding. Balderton Capital led the round, and was joined by return backer Holtzbrinck Ventures.
Berlin-based social games developer wooga today announced that it has secured a further EUR5 million ($7.5m) in its latest round of funding led by Balderton Capital, one of Europe’s largest venture capital firms. Holtzbrinck Ventures, which provided funding earlier this year, has also participated in this round.

This latest investment will allow wooga to hire new talent, continue to develop top quality games and grow the company further. Roberto Bonanzinga, Partner at Balderton Capital, will also join the board of wooga.

Founded in January 2009, wooga (a contraction of “world of gaming”) develops games for social networks. Its first game, Brain Buddies, was released on Facebook in July 2009 and is currently one of the top 20 games on the Facebook platform with 6 million monthly users.

Roberto Bonanzinga, Partner at Balderton Capital, said: “wooga is a great early stage company, the kind of company Balderton loves to invest in. wooga has a dynamic and experienced management team, led by founder Jens Begemann, and it is based in Berlin, one of Europe’s most creative cities. Social gaming on sites such as Facebook is a key growth sector right now. We have full confidence in Jens’ ability to build a world-class team and look forward to working with wooga to expand its market further and build a global business.”

Dr. Lars Langusch, Partner at Holtzbrinck Ventures, said: “Since our initial investment in wooga a few months ago, the company has established itself as one of the top games developers for the Facebook platform. We are confident that wooga will continue to exceed our expectations.”

Jens Begemann, founder and CEO of wooga, said: “We are proud to have Balderton, one of the world’s leading investors in social media and gaming, as our new partner. We also welcome further funding from Holtzbrinck, which provides a vote of confidence in wooga and its future growth prospects. wooga focuses on offering a quality user experience that provides a safe, rewarding gaming experience. By providing true value in social gaming, we believe wooga can achieve sustained long-term growth. This investment will allow us to hire more talented people in the coming weeks and months.”

At the 22nd Congress of Force Ouvrière (FO), held between 14–18 February 2011, Secretary General Jean-Claude Mailly called on members during the closing session to ‘fight, resist, negotiate, act!’. FO is France’s third largest trade union, and it does not seem downcast about losing the fight with the government over pension reform. A reinvigorated FO declared that it would overcome difficulties placed in its way by approaching changes to trade union representativeness.
