wooga, a Berlin, Germany-based social games developer, announced that it has secured a further €5m ($7.5m) in its latest round of funding.
The round was led by Balderton Capital with participation from Holtzbrinck Ventures.
The funds will be used to hire new talent (wooga currently has a staff of 25 from 9 countries), continue to develop games and grow the company further.
In conjunction with the financing, Roberto Bonanzinga, Partner at Balderton Capital, will join the board of wooga.
