Neonga raises 2 million in funding

Newly founded online company attracts investors

Neonga, the online developer founded by Rolf Kloppel, has raised over 2 million in funding from German investors.

Yesterday the firm announced the appointment of Steven Hinz as chief marketing officer, meaning that the company now employs several executives who previously worked at Frogster before the company was acquired by GameForge.

"With the proceeds of this round of financing we will be able to develop the infrastructure, staff, range of titles and marketing power to play a significant role in the booming online gaming market," said Neonga CEO Rolf Kloppel.

"With their very experienced team and their convincing strategy, we see excellent prospects of valuable synergies within our portfolio," said Mischa Wetzel, an investment manager who was part of the funding drive.

"We are delighted to be able to support this very promising company with its unique setup in Berlin, through our financial investment and our contact network."

An announcement about Neonga's first game is expected in the next few weeks.
