Secretlab has just secured a huge injection of funding from Temasek subsidiary Heliconia Capital Management, with the gaming chair company saying this is the first external investor for Secretlab.
Heliconia has invested in other tech companies including Razer, with its new stake in Secretlab described as a "small minority stake" that sees Secretlab valued at between S$200-$300 million, which works out to $144-$216 million -- not a small sum at all, for a gaming chair company that is very significant.
It goes to show that all of the hard work Secretlab has put into its gaming c hairs over the years is paying off, not just from its consumers and fans, but from investment firms seeing the future being bright for Secretlab.
The company has been consistent on kicking ass, securing deals with esports teams and even pop culture chairs like Game of Thrones and Batman. I still want a Superman-themed chair with a cape and all, so maybe with this new investment round Secretlab will do it -- please?!
