“This is a very exciting transaction,” said Daniel Bailey, Chief Commercial Officer Veloce and CEO of Veloce Racing. “It comes very soon after the announcement of VEXT and our plans to evolve our media and sports group into this truly innovative space; validating Veloce’s position as a pioneer in the industry. The GEM commitment will allow us to focus on growth and expansion, through the acquisition of more gaming and real-life racing properties, ultimately giving our vast community further VEXT utility and influence.”
For GEM Digital, the investment has found a natural home that reflects its ambitions to work with diverse organisations whilst promoting businesses in emerging markets, supporting sustainable and inclusive ambitions through business. The investment promises to herald mutual long-term opportunities.
