Attention Holdings’ owned e-sports platform EVOS Esports has raised US$12 million in a Series B investment round. The round of funding was led by Korea Investment Partners (KIP) with participation from Mirae Asset Ventures, Woowa Brothers, Indogen Capital, and existing investor Insignia Ventures Partners.
EVOS raised US$4.4 million in Series A funding from Insignia and several investors less than a year ago.
The startup will use the fresh capital for enhancing its tech capabilities.

With their global portfolio and in-depth experience in this industry, we believe that we have secured the right partners to bring our company to the next level” said Ivan Yeo, Chief Executive Officer of ATTN.
