Compliance software provider Compliable has completed a US$3.6m (£2.6m/€3.1m) seed extension round led by Bettor Capital, an investment that will enable the supplier to further strengthen its platform and expand the scope of products and services that it provides to real-money gaming operators.
The investment from Bettor Capital marks the second funding round for Compliable in the past year, with the company previously securing $1.7m seed funding in a round led by Chicago-based KB Partners.
Additionally, Carl Sottosanti, a fund advisor to Bettor Capital and former General Counsel of Penn National Gaming, has joined Compliable’s board of directors.
For real-money sports betting and iGaming companies in North America, the Compliable platform offers a solution that makes it far easier to complete, manage and maintain gaming licenses across multiple states and jurisdictions. Compliable’s software platform and tools provide customers both significant time and cost savings, enabling operators to enter new markets more quickly and to meaningfully reduce the ongoing burden of regulatory requirements.
Launched in 2020, Compliable has signed several new customers, ranging from market leaders to start-ups, and with online gaming legislation continuing to gain momentum across numerous US states, the demand for the platform has intensified. Compliable will use the new capital to accelerate the delivery of key functionality and features to facilitate and speed up launches as sports betting and iGaming continue their rapid expansion across the US. It also allows Compliable to expand its executive team with Justin Stempeck, former Director of Licensing at DraftKings, who joined Compliable as Chief Strategy Officer.
Chris Oltyan, CEO of Compliable, said: “Following discussions with our customers, prospects, regulators and industry contacts it became clear that our solution is timely and necessary, and we realized that expanding our engineering team was essential to keep up with the many feature requests. Additionally, with Justin to help navigate the compliance landscape, we’re positioned to grow exponentially in the coming year. We are also excited to partner with Bettor Capital who brings significant real-money gaming experience and has a deep focus on the software supply chain within the industry.”
David VanEgmond, founder and CEO of Bettor Capital, said: “With the ever growing complexity of licensing in the real-money gaming market, Compliable has quickly become an integral part of how companies process and maintain their regulatory compliance as they enter new markets. I know first-hand from my time as an executive at FanDuel how critical and resource-intensive it can be to comply with diverse gaming regulations on a state-by-state basis. Compliable’s technology makes this process easier and saves companies money, which we believe represents a great long-term value proposition for a software vendor to an exciting growth industry.”
Carl Sottosanti, Member of Compliable’s Board of Directors, said: “Compliance must be top-of-mind for all companies entering the complex US online market and with Compliable’s platform, the employee gaming licensing process is significantly simplified and expedited. I look forward to being part of the company’s journey in what is a very exciting time for the industry.”
