Teleporter VR announced that it has received an investment at a valuation of $ 20 million. Established in 2022 with the cooperation of Arya Women Investment Platform and Türkiye İş Bankası, Arya GSYF partnered with Maxis and made its first investment in Teleporter after evaluating 169 startups. This investment will be used to expand the World of Gamers universe, produce new content, integrate player communities around the world into this universe, and realise new and exciting game worlds such as Merlin’s Chess.
The investment, led by Arya GSYF, not only helps Teleporter realise its own goals, but also creates value in terms of “supporting the minimum 50% target of female employee balance” that the team has focused on since the beginning. Teleporter VR, a Silicon Valley-based startup led by Dilara Keçeci and Aslan Yerdelen, brings together gamers all over the world in a digital social XR universe under the name The World of Gamers, enabling them to play various games, participate in gaming conferences and digital versions of events in this field.
