February 16, 2022

Spotter, the creator platform, today announced US$200 million in Series D financing at a valuation of US$1.7 billion, led by SoftBank Vision Fund 2. This follows an additional US$555 million that Spotter has raised across three previously undisclosed rounds of financing. With this new capital and through reinvestment, Spotter will invest US$1 billion directly into YouTube creators, allowing them to further grow their businesses.

Latham & Watkins LLP represents SoftBank Vision Fund 2 in the financing with an emerging companies deal team led by Bay Area partners Saad Khanani and Ben Potter, with Bay Area associate Chris Pham and Chicago associate Autumn Schmidt. Advice was also provided on intellectual property matters by Bay Area counsel Arielle Singh; and on HSR matters by Washington, D.C. counsel Patrick English.
