Delhi-based smartphone gaming social network Gamezop announced today that it had raised $350,000 in seed funding. The round was led by Indian entertainment and marketing firm Kwan. US-based Powerhouse Ventures, an existing investor in Gamezop, also participated in the round, along with Tracxn Labs, Germany-based AECAL, and angel investors, including Snapdeal’s product officer Anand Chandrasekaran, Redbus co-founder Phanindra Sama, and Vinay Menon.
Founded by brothers Yashash and Gaurav Agarwal in January 2015, Gamezop seeks to lessen the amount of data spent downloading apps by offering hundreds of games on one app. Its founders are true believers in HTML5, a type of game structure that works on both mobile and desktop. The startup
offers both full-length games and demo games that prompt the user to download other games to access more levels.
