Local media company Hepmil Media Group announced today (November 25) that it has closed a US$10 million Series A funding round.
The round is led by venture capital fund Quest Ventures, Pavilion Capital — a private equity firm under Temasek Holdings — and Bent Pixels, the world’s largest gaming lifestyle media platform.
The Group owns media companies SGAG, MGAG, PGAG, as well as digital creator agency Hepmil Creators’ Network (HCN), and this is its first fund raise from institutional investors since its founding in 2015.
Over the years, it has evolved to become more than just a digital media platform, with capabilities in technology and production, talent and cast management, as well as providing media inventory specific to the esports sector in Southeast Asia (SEA).
Headquartered in Singapore, Bent Pixels Asia will enable Hepmil Media Group to expand its influence and reach within the esports community in SEA, by being the preferred provider for YouTube reserved media in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
