Solid Clouds, the developer behind Starborne: Sovereign Space, has raised $2.5 million in a funding round led by Kjölur fjárfestingarfélag. The company also received a $475 thousand growth grant from the Technology Development Fund.

Stefán Gunnarsson, CEO and co-founder of Solid Clouds, commented: “We’re happy to have closed this financing, and being joined by as experienced an investor as Kjölur. The investment will be used to fund marketing and growth, as well as a mobile version of the game.”

Starborne is a real-time, massively multiplayer strategy game set to enter Open Beta in Q2 2018.

“We’ve been watching Solid Clouds for some time because of their revolutionary game that looks very promising,” says Guðmundur Ingi Jónsson, Manager of Kjölur fjárfestingarfélag. “We’re excited to share our experience with the team on building a tech company.” Guðmundur takes a seat on the board of directors following the funding.

Kjölur is an Icelandic investment company and one of the lead investors in Greenqloud, which was sold to NetApp last year.
