Yolo Investments has become an equity holder in disruptive events and media platform iGaming NEXT, joining other investors Robin Eirik Reed and Lahcene Merzoug in assuming holdings in the quickly expanding company.
The new funding will power the next stage of iGaming NEXT, which has established itself as a modern alternative on the iGaming events circuit. Its content-driven 2019 event hosted in Malta, attended by more than 1,200 delegates, focused upon providing world-class learning opportunities.
iGaming NEXT has also expanded into the media sector, hosting what has already become the iGaming industry’s most popular podcast.
The support of the new equity holders will help iGaming NEXT transition into the next phase of its growth, solidify the brand with its industry thought-leaders, expand the team and launch additional disruptive products.
Yolo Investments GP Tim Heath said: “During what has been a very challenging year for the events business, we’ve been hugely impressed by the progress of iGaming NEXT. The team’s forward-thinking approach is delivering intelligent discourse and thought leadership around our industry across multiple channels. We look forward to working with them to ensure their continued success.”
iGaming NEXT co-founder and Managing Director Pierre Lindh said: “Attracting support from Yolo Investments, Robin Reed and Lahcene Merzoug underlines how far iGaming NEXT has come in a short space of time, and how much potential there is in this project.
“We felt there was a lot of room for improvement compared to the current iGaming events offering, and found many in the industry shared our view. We’ve committed to producing more professional, content-led events which better serve the needs of a modern, multi-billion euro global industry. We are confident the support and expertise of our new investors will allow us to deliver upon this.”
