Improbable, a London, UK-based developer platform for simulated worlds, raised $20m in funding.
Andreessen Horowitz made the investment. In conjunction with the funding, Chris Dixon, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, joined Improbable’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to build the platform.
Founded by a group of computer scientists from the University of Cambridge including CEO Herman Narula and CTO Rob Whitehead, Improbable is developing an operating environment to build simulated worlds which can be run in real time in gaming, defence, energy, city efficiency, health, and finance.
The company is hiring.
