Xsolla Capital, now called Xsolla Funding Club, is a venture capital and private equity firm investing in video games that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California and was founded in 2016 by Alexandr Agapitov, Vrett Brown, and Dmitri Bourkovski. The firm is a sub-organization of Xsolla.
On February 16, 2017 Xsolla Capital announced a $30 million fund to invest in projects being made by independent game developers in exchange for royalty rights. The founder of Xsolla and a partner at Xsolla Capital, Alexandr Agapitov, made the following statement about the firms royalty fund:
We believe VC investments in the video games industry is an undeserved niche. We want to offer the opportunity for any developer to self-publish and create their vision of the best game possible, while we will provide the capital to complete the title but also help with marketing, user acquisition, data analytics, etc. after the game is released. We believe that this is a unique and desired business model and value proposition to both investors and developers.
