StoryCo Raises $6M in Seed Funding


StoryCo, a Los Angeles, CA-based provider of an open storytelling platform, raised $6M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Collab + Currency and Patron with participation from Floodgate Ventures, Blockchange Ventures, Sfermion, Flamingo DAO and angels Lloyd Braun, Sabrina Hahn, Packy McCormick, GMoney, and executives from UTA and WME.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth and expand operations.

StoryCo provides an open storytelling platform where creators and passionate fan connect, collaborate, co-create, and co-own the story franchise IP alongside established Hollywood talent. The inaugural production allows fans and creatives to extend The Disco Ball story, led by Story Architect Kyle Killen (Halo, Fear Street: Part One – 1994, Awake, Mind Games) and world-renowned artists shelby and sandy, and share the rewards of ownership.

Releasing on the StoryCo platform in early 2023, The Disco Ball is an immersive and collaborative storytelling experience – a first-of-its-kind interactive narrative unfolding across the StoryCo site, social media and real-world interactions. The Disco Ball follows Captain Alma Cooke and her team of astronauts on the International Space Station as they are thrust into an existential journey to save the multiverse – a journey that can only be completed with the community’s help. By deciphering puzzles, discovering artifacts, and solving quests as the story unfolds on the StoryCo platform, the community will experience Alma and her crew’s story and assist as they fight forces that seek to end the Universe as we know it. Community members can now claim their Disco Ball StoryPass to collect and earn digital art related to key story moments and characters, culminating in an exclusive piece of rare digital art that also conveys the right to control the future of The Disco Ball story.
