LONDON, April 7 /CNW/ - Aiming to further develop its range of
fast-growing, location-based iPhone applications, London-based software
development house Project Zebra today announced it has secured an
investment (amount undisclosed) and collaboration commitment from
Venista Ventures, a Cologne, Germany-based venture capital firm that
concentrates on the mobile sector. "The agreement ensures our company
has the equipment, infrastructure and qualified staff we need to take
Project Zebra's software solutions to the next level," said founder and
CEO Barry Scott.
Project Zebra is the company behind the successful iPhone game
foursqWAR, a location-based app game in which players combat with
virtual troops for buildings that exist in the actual world. The game
is available on the Apple's App Store and will be released on
additional platforms later this year. In foursqWAR, users take on the
role of military tacticians as they defend their home buildings and
invade enemy territory.
Venista Ventures decided to invest in Project Zebra based on its strong
performance and huge potential in the location-based smartphone games
arena. "We believe that Project Zebra holds tremendous promise," said
Oliver Wimmeroth, co-founder of Venista Ventures. "Foursqwar in
particular is a real winner, and with the further improvements Barry
has in the pipeline I can see it setting new standards for smartphone
gaming socializing-marketing integration."
Project Zebra Ltd. is based in London, United Kingdom, and led by
founder and CEO Barry Scott, an entrepreneur and iOS development
specialist. The company was established with the help of an investment
from Cologne, Germany-based Venista Ventures.
Venista Ventures is a Cologne, Germany-based mobile ventures group
specializing in early-stage mobile entertainment and value products. It
