Synot to Invest in Startupyard

We’re happy to announce that Synot, a corporate holding that encompasses a huge range of businesses in Central Europe, will become an investor in our upcoming accelerator class.

Most denizens of Prague, or other central European cities and towns will be familiar with Synot. Synot Holding spans 11 companies with 700 employees in the Czech Republic alone, which include concerns in real-estate, high-end automobile sales, cloud computing, and gaming, Synot operates a range of fixed-odds betting services with which many consumers are familiar.

Synot began supporting startups 4 years ago, starting with MADFINGER Games (producer of award-winning games ShadowGun and Dead Trigger) and Flow Studio (a selected developer for Leap Motion), in a move designed to diversify the company’s activities and offerings. Today, these company offer a range of popular games, mostly on mobile platforms iOS and Android. Shadowgun, Madfinger’s most popular title to date, was called by IGN’s Justin Davis “one of the best-looking mobile games ever created.”

Over the last few years, Synot has showed a strong commitment towards the growing startups ecosystem in our region and we are delighted that they have chosen StartupYard as their preferred partner, helping us to support ambitious seed projects.
