Two New Unicorns!
Hot off the press! Jellysmack announced today a very large Series C led by Softbank, becoming a new unicorn in our portfolio. 🙌
The global leader in the Creator Economy detects and develops the world's most talented video creators through its unique technology. Haven't heard of them before? Makes sense since "its founders have always been very discreet & under the radar" as explains Boris Golden, who has been at the Board of the company since Partech led their pre-seed round 5 years ago.
In April, Alan announced its $220M Series D at a $1.67B valuation, making it a new unicorn! The round was led by Coatue with Dragoneer, Exor, and existing investors Index Ventures, Ribbit Capital and Temasek also participating. Read the article in TechCrunch. 🙌
Romain Lavault shared his insider story about the incredible Alan team and how the pre-seed round happened 5 years ago.
"There was something prophetic about the vision of JC and Charles, something absurdly clear and surgically precise (pun intended) in how Alan was going to be built and successful."
