A great Danish startup story keeps unfolding: David Helgason – with his two co-founders Joachim Ante and Nicholas Francis – is continuing on their path to make Unity Technologies become a major provider of platform for awesome games and interactive 3D on the web, iOS, Android, consoles and beyond.
On 20 July 2011, Unity announced
that it had secured $12 million in a Series B financing round led by WestSummit Capital in China and iGlobe Partners in Singapore. Raymond Yang, Founding Partner and Managing Director of WestSummit Capital, will join Unity Technologies’ board. Current investor Sequoia Capital also participated in this round. Unity Technologies plans to use the funding to accelerate technology roadmaps, expand into Asia and continue its mission of democratizing game development.
Unity Technologies, though now an American company, still has a considerable presence in Copenhagen, from where it traces its roots from 10 years back. A number of key persons are still Danes.
