Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has recently made an equity investment of two million dollars in JetSynthesys. The investment further strengthens Tendulkar’s relationship with JetSynthesys; the duo already has an existing joint venture for a first-of-its kind digital destination for all things cricket, 100MB, and the very popular immersive cricket games Sachin Saga Cricket Champions and Sachin Saga VR.
With this investment, Tendulkar joins the bandwagon of existing shareholders of JetSynthesys – Adar Poonawalla, Kris Gopalakrishnan, and the multi-billion-dollar family offices of the promoters of Thermax, Triveni Group, Yohan Poonawalla Group and DSP Group. The cricket king’s iconic game, Sachin Saga Cricket Champions has been a gamer’s favourite and has doubled its daily user base in the past 12 months. Another platform sizzling with sports fever has been 100MB, an all-encompassing cricket destination with live cricket score, social sports interactions and commerce, along with engagement through casual cricket games and quizzes.
Commenting on this investment, the Tendulkar said, “My association with JetSynthesys goes back to almost five years now. We started our journey with Sachin Saga Cricket Champions and strengthened it with a unique Virtual Reality cricket experience. It is one of the most popular games in its category with over 20 million downloads. Our next product was 100MB, a first-of-its-kind digital destination for all things cricket. When this association began, the aim was to provide an authentic gaming experience for cricket lovers across the globe; now I am briefed that the team is looking to diversify that purview to include more cross category digital products and platforms.”
Commenting on this crucial development, JetSynthesys vice chairman and managing director Rajan Navani said, “We welcomed Sachin to the JetSynthesys family back in 2016 and our association has only grown stronger since then. We created Sachin Saga Cricket Champions and Sachin Saga VR to give fans an opportunity to step into the shoes of the most iconic cricket superstar in the country. With 100MB, we gave Sachin’s fans the opportunity to have a platform where they could interact with him directly. With this investment, we are excited to see Sachin become an even more crucial member of the JetSynthesys family. We’re proud to have a Bharat Ratna onboard, a man with strong values, and an iconic Indian and global brand, as we build a global new age digital media entertainment and sports platform. Sachin’s longstanding support is a testament of his faith in our vision and together we hope to enrich more lives across the country, and in the process, make JetSynthesys an even stronger name in India’s digital ecosystem.”
