About Sugar

Sugar is a financing platform that offers flexible, quick and efficient financing to help game studios and app developers scale-up. The games industry is driven by metric and we specialise in providing capital through data-driven finance, at the right time

Our metrics-driven loans can help studios to scale-up quickly and take them from a few thousand users to a few hundred thousand users and beyond.

At the heart of everything we do is a deep understanding of the key metrics of games and apps, as well as what drives their performance. Our solutions can support a studio at any stage of its lifecycle and we are embedded in the games and apps ecosystem.

We are on a mission to revolutionise finance for the digital economy
