The news is finally out: CGTrader has raised $9.5M in funding

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we have secured $9.5M in series B funding and welcomed Ex-Rovio CEO Mikael Hed as our Board Chairman. Michael Hed is best known for taking the Finnish entertainment company Rovio from a small mobile games startup to a global entertainment company with its Angry Birds phenomenon. We’re looking forward to applying those global scaling lessons to our products.

Thank you for your trust, loyalty, and incredible work

Our journey began in 2011. Since the founding of our marketplace, we have always strived to create the best and most designer-friendly opportunities for our members. We have worked tirelessly to continuously improve our platform and its capabilities. So it would be an understatement to say that we’re incredibly proud to be the world’s largest 3D content provider, with so many amazing 3D designers on board. Our community’s trust and loyalty is the greatest achievement so far.

"From day one, our vision within CGTrader has been twofold: to build a product that is designer-first and create an ecosystem that connects businesses to the world’s top 3D talent and technology solutions. I’m grateful for every member of the CGTrader community who put their trust in us and was part of this fantastic growth ride – none of this would have been possible without you! Our focus remains dedicated to further improving our marketplace and ARsenal enterprise platform to create new opportunities for our community and we welcome your feedback and suggestions for product improvements. Thank you for being part of this journey!"

— Marius Kalytis, Co-founder and COO at CGTrader

What's the next step?

As 3D and AR technologies move into the mainstream, we’re gearing up for a high-growth stage. More resources will allow us to accomplish our mission even faster and create an abundance of opportunities for our talented designer community. We will continue to invest heavily in our marketplace to further improve speed, reliability, and overall capabilities to provide best-in-class experiences for our customers and users.

Ok. Would've been nice to take a ride to abandoned industrial objects, cities and villages with rulers, photo equipment and helicopters because it knocking down gradually. Yeah, it is some dangerous thing due to old building crashes, dogs, guards.
