The company has experienced impressive growth since inception and has an innovative Fan AI product launch on the horizon. We look forward to supporting WIT’s growth and continued efforts to become the leading digital activation platform.”

WIT will use the new funding to scale its operations, fuel product innovation, invest in new verticals, and expand the team. “We are incredibly excited to partner with McCarthy Capital to continue to push the boundaries of fan engagement”, said Vaidhy Murti, Founder & CEO of WIT. “We are in the early stages of a digital revolution, and this investment will empower us to further deepen our commitment to our people and our partners.
