Operating within a US$661M market, Agate Studio creates a wide array of B2C games available on mobile apps and online, including the popular and award-winning Football Saga 2. The company expects to reach 720,000 monthly active users (MAU) and around 80 corporate clients, generating US$3.5M in revenue.

Agate already counts Samsung, Unilever, Ford, and Nokia as corporate clients, for whom it develops innovative marketing or educational tools. In the B2C market alone, the company has seen MAU grow year-over-year by 157%.
