A startup that helps gamers become better at sports games like FIFA and F1 by analyzing their own player data just raised $1.8 million in seed funding.
London-based Titan Academy was founded by Max Teichert, a racing instructor for Porsche who was also a Gran Turismo Academy finalist in 2014.
The startup has developed an automated coaching platform that analyzes user data, to provide automated insights on how to become better. Users pay a monthly subscription fee and get personalized feedback.
“By taking players’ game data and analyzing it in the cloud, we help them get better,” Teichert told Insider. “Currently, we have a platform for racing games in the market and the first-ever FIFA analytics platform in development.”
Titan Academy takes the player’s previous movements and uses them to generate in-depth insights, such as telling users when to next brake or turn. The aim is to help players across all levels of expertise, although the current customer base mainly consists of “amateur gamers that simply want to beat their friends,” said Teichert.
Beyond this, the startup’s platform can be extended to wider use cases, from B2B purposes for scouting and team analytics, to betting on real-life sports, said investor and board member Paul Neagoe.
The seed round was led by the venture arm of Romanian sports betting company Superbet, which is backed by investment giant Blackstone. Additional participation came from London-based venture capital firms Ascension, which has backed childcare platform Koru Kids and consumer fintech Plend, and Concept Ventures, along with Berlin-based VC APX.
With the fresh funds, the startup will further expand its racing games platform, and also launch the first-ever FIFA analytics platform. It will also grow its B2B offerings and ramp up its product and tech headcount.
