eRepublik is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online browsergame with a lot of players. The game was launched in autumn of 2007, more precisely in november 2007, by eRepublik Labs whose founder was George Lemnaru. The company that is behind of the game, eRepublik Labs, was founded in the same year with the game, and has its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. George Lemnaru was the person who founded this social game,he was financially supported by Alexis Bonte with € 550.000, the money was offer in exchange for 11% of the company. Shares value was established by George Lemnaru and Alexis Bonte from the site evaluation, an evaluation which revealed a market value of the site at €5 millions.
Right after the agreement of the two, eRepublik started to grow and continue to climb significant places in statistics, over time the game has several rounds of financing, the total sums is around € 2.75 millions, money was coming from various investors and companies such as: Brent Hoberman, Stefan Glaenzer, Mihai Crasneanu, Alexandre Almajeanu, Diego Meller, Philippe Seignol and AGF Private Equity.
