GamesBandy received a USD 40 K grant from Taqadam, a Mena startup accelerator helping innovators push the boundaries of what is possible for their gamer marketplace platform. Taqadam will also spend six months guiding and developing the company through mentorship, zero-equity funding, and training. The grant comes just a couple of months after GamesBandy received seed funding from Flat6labs and Tamkeen.
GamesBandy is a gaming platform that offers features such as trading accounts, in-game items, or virtual currencies. The startup offers a one-of-a-kind solution to one of gaming’s most vexing issues: buying and selling in-game products and accounts. GamesBandy intends to use the grant to expand its platform to support more games, expand geographically, and grow its user base.
