Epulze, an Örebro, Sweden-based operator of an esports tournament platform, announced closing a funding deal totalling SEK 57 million ($6.6M).
Two of the founders, Tristan Sjöberg and Michael Knutsson, also took part in the latest funding round via Knutsson Holdings, as they increased ownership in the company.

The platform offers players access to competing for prize money and other prizes as they can join automated tournaments and challenges. Epulze currently has 37 employees in six countries.
Prior to this round, in 2019, Epulze raised SEK $17.5M and announced its intentions to publicly float its shares in 2020.
