99Math, backed by Play Ventures, Change Ventures, and Flyer One Ventures, Martin Villig and Peter Vesterbacka came to our attention through a recommendation by Alvar Lumberg. The team has recently restructured and is now pursuing a new direction that has led to improved metrics and a clearer monetization strategy.

Our team had a call with the founder to receive an update and was impressed with both the vision and progress. However, at this stage, we have not considered syndication due to our current infrastructure capacity constraints, as our focus remains on closing the existing pipeline.

That being said, there is a promising opportunity to join this round with pre-committed investors. It is also noteworthy that some of our members are already considering investing in 99Math. The founder is contemplating setting up an SPV for smaller ticket investments.

Jyrö Ojasaar is leading this deal from the investors' side and can provide further details. Please let us know if you would like an introduction.
