BERLIN, Germany, September 17, 2020 -- Bayes announced the closing of a $6M USD funding
round today, which included participation from the Pohlad Family investment group, Fertitta
Capital, Sony Innovation Fund, and other influential sports and media investors. The funding will
be used to further expand the data and content offering on its platform and to develop new
platform features that benefit both data suppliers and consumers.
Bayes, formerly DOJO Madness, turned profitable in 2020 driven by significant continued
revenue growth year over year. In the previous year, Bayes cemented significant data
partnerships, including marquee deals with ESL and Riot Games. The substance of the company’s
activities is formed by Bayes Esports, founded in 2019 in partnership with Sportradar, and
Shadow.GG, the leading Professional Esports Analytics and Visualization Suite.
“With our two business units, we are able to provide a never-seen-before depth of data when it
comes to professional esports tournaments and matches globally. This provides a great starting
point for the creation of new services and products leading to greater entertainment offerings
for the esports fans and community,” said Jens Hilgers, Co-Founder and Managing Director of
“The collection, refinement and distribution of esports leagues’ data, combined with the
provision of products on top of it, is necessary to further professionalize the esports ecosystem
and grow the overall market. We have high conviction in the Bayes team, and believe that Bayes’
technology and esports data platform represent the best solution for all stakeholders to advance
the industry at large,” Bayes investor Charlie Pohlad explains.

services to business customers. Bayes owns and oversees two Berlin-based business units: Shadow, which develops analytical
