Hadean, a London-based metaverse infrastructure technology startup, has now secured $30 million in a Series A funding round.
Hadean is founded by Craig Beddis. It provides a distributed cloud platform that enables scalability, interoperability, and security, driving the metaverse and immersive digital experiences for enterprise, gaming and commercial, and government customers. The company has developed vital metaverse components and signed multi-year agreements in entertainment, as well as with education and enterprise digital twin providers.Executive OpinionMarc Petit, VP of Epic's Unreal Engine Ecosystem, said, "Hadean's computing power will provide the infrastructure that's needed as we work to create a scalable metaverse. The company's technology complements Epic's Unreal Engine by enabling massive amounts of concurrent users and unlocking new tools for creators and developers. We are pleased to contribute to Hadean's growth and look forward to continuing to work together to lay the foundation for the metaverse."
Craig Beddis, Hadean Co-Founder and CEO, said, "Hadean's mission is to bridge physical and virtual worlds - to help us make better decisions and ultimately improve the quality of our lives in the physical world. Today's virtual worlds are a limited experience - small scale, siloed, and insecure. Hence why these are the technical challenges, we're tackling today. But we believe the true success and mass adoption of the metaverse will rely on the ease by which creators will be able to build their own experiences at scale, leveraging open and robust metaverse-as-a-service technologies. We're delighted to work with industry leaders like Epic Games, who share our ethos and ambition for this reality."
