Bunch Team

Bunch is building the home for gamers in the metaverse where they party up and jump into their favorite games. Our developer platform allows game developers to integrate our party functionality into their own games while tapping into the community of players on Bunch.

Our team is based in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Waterloo and comes from companies like Meta, Google and Kik, bringing together the DNA of building large scale social networks, developer platforms, games and blockchain applications.

Founded in 2017, Bunch is backed by notable investors like General Catalyst, LVP - and many of the largest game companies including Electronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Krafton, Supercell, Riot, Miniclip, Tencent, Mixi and COLOPL.
