Vostu

Vostu is a social gaming company which was launched in May 2007.

Initially a social network for Latin America with a strong presence in Brazil, the company developed and launched its first succesful social game in June 2009 under the title “Joga Craque”, a soccer-focused RPG for Brazilian players. It then launched a version of the same game on the popular Brazilian social network Orkut in October 2009. More recently, Vostu launched a farming game on Orkut called “Mini Fazenda” which as of January 31, 2010 had 8 million monthly active users and was rated the #1 social game on the Orkut platform.

Vostu was started by Daniel Kafie, Mario Schlosser and Josh Kushner while they were students at Harvard University. As of February 2010, Vostu is a private company with offices in Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, and New York. The company is venture-backed by Intel Capital who led a $1.3M seed round in early 2008 and a follow-on investment in November 2009 for an undisclosed amount.
