Dubai-based gaming platform GameCentric has raised $1.5 million in capital from Angel Investor Bilal Merchant. Founded in 2023 by Saad Khan, the company is one of the region’s newest gaming platforms which is pushing for clearer connection between brands and gamers.

“Our aspiration is not just to be a gaming platform but a cultural phenomenon transcending borders,” Khan, Founder and CEO of GameCentric, tells StartupScene. “Collaboration with industry leaders, community-driven programs and an unwavering commitment to have the best user experience drives all of our future initiatives."

In line with its vision, GameCentric is set to integrate cutting-edge technologies to create new compelling propositions for brands, game publishers and gamers. In the coming years, GameCentric will transition to be a Web3 digitally native platform, with cryptocurrency integration by 2025.

“GameCentric’s visionary strategy in seamlessly connecting brands with gamers, coupled with their unwavering commitment to integrating cutting-edge technologies, has left an indelible impression on me,” says angel investor Bilal Merchant. “Their innovative approach positions them as disruptors in the gaming landscape.”

The company is gearing up for an aggressive growth and market expansion plan over the next two years, looking to make its mark on the industry having only begun operations last year. GameCentric aims to triple its user base across the region within this two year period, with the MENA region projected to touch 88 million gamers by 2026.
