“The opportunity to bring in additional top tier investors that share our vision is very exciting. ” said David Baszucki, CEO of Roblox. “We’re already profitable, but the additional infusion of capital helps to strengthen our balance sheet so that we can accelerate building the most social, immersive and powerful imagination platform.”
