Founded by Michael Wayne and Chris Kimbell, both formerly of Sony Pictures, DECA (Digital Entertainment Company of America) launches as a production house for mainstream digital entertainment.
The company received $5 million from Mayfield, Atomico and General Catalyst Partners and will be putting the investment into finding and financing novel digital entertainment web properties. DECA, however, will not serve as a destination for these properties, but rather invest in them and distribute them through their partner's channels.
