Novos raises $6 million for games training platform

The funding round was led by MizMaa Ventures

Virtual games training platform Novos has raised $6 million in a funding round led by MizMaa Ventures.

According to GamesBeat, Remagine Ventures, Gal Ventures and Kaedan Capital also contributed to the round.

Novos is a Tel Aviv-based company that provides training in various games, including Fortnite, for players looking to get better. The platform is targeting players of all abilities, including esports pros.

Co-founder Or Briga told GamesBeat: "Unlike professional sports, the path towards improvement (as a gamer) is a mystery. This is the reason we started Novos.... We give them the best training activities and sessions to complete, while they have the opportunity to be part of a friend group, play with other people, train with other people.

"We do all of this in a holistic way. It's not just mechanical skills, and it's not just about watching videos. We encourage gamers to take breaks after long days of gaming. This is Novos in a nutshell."
