Shadow Government Closes $1 Million Angel Round

A ground-breaking partnership with The Millennium Institute enables gaming veterans and entrepreneurs Margaret Wallace, Nick Fortugno and Philippe Trawnika to create an entirely new form of social gaming based on gamifying real countries, systems, and worldwide events.

investiere.ch investors, along with other Swiss private investors have helped Shadow Government close a $1 million round of angel funding. In partnership with The Millennium Institute, the creators of the most broadly used real-world government modeling software, Shadow Government will enable an entirely new form of social gaming based on the gamification of real countries, systems, and worldwide events.

"Up to now, this tool has only been in the hands of governments and policy-makers to use and to test out real-world events," explains Margreth Wallace of Shadow Government in the offical press release on the closing of their financing round. "Now, for the first time, anyone with an iPhone or Android can ‘play’ at what it’s like to simulate running a real country." The full press release is attached to this post.

Shadow Government represents a unique combination of Switzerland-based IP and investors with US game industry expertise and network. A number of our investors were very excited about this combination. So was Techcrunch, when they featured the company in their online blog (TechCrunch article on Shadow Government)
