Soteria AI, a Hong Kong and San Francisco, CA-based company developing an AI assistant for gaming, secured $5M in private funding.
N5 Holdings, led by CEO and Chairwoman Princess Nouf bint Bandar Al Saud, made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds for continued development of its assistant.
Led by William Nobrega, Founder, Tim Carruthers, COO and President, Eric Schneider, CTO, and Devon Nobrega, Chief Scientist, Soteria AI is advancing Natasha, an AI assistant for amateur and semi-professional gamers. The company is working closely with AI experts Aigo and innovation lab Axion Ventures to develop its AI assistant. It will release its first game next year, Rising Fire Battle Royale, soon to be available in Asia through Tencent’s distribution network. The game features a Fortnite-style battle royale arena, and the North American release will see players receive in-game assistance and support from Natasha.
The company, which is currently valued at $75MM, has offices in the US and China.
