Improbable is a British technology company that focuses on large-scale simulations in the cloud, enabling virtual worlds of unprecedented scale and complexity.
History and Leadership
Improbable was founded in 2012 by Herman Narula (CEO), Rob Whitehead (CTO), and Peter Lipka (COO). Since then, Improbable has grown to nearly 200 employees, with offices in London and San Francisco.
Improbable seeks to power previously unmakeable games and answer previously unanswerable questions that lead to a better functioning world.
Improbable has been supported by some of the largest and most visionary investors in the world. In March 2015, Improbable received $20m in Series A funding from Andreessen Horowitz. In July 2015, a follow-on Series A investment saw Horizons Ventures lead a $30m funding round, with Temasek, the Singaporean investment company, contributing $5m.
In May 2017 Improbable announced a $502m Series B funding round, led by SoftBank. Our Series A investors Andreessen Horowitz and Horizons Ventures also joined this round with follow-on investments.
