http://techcrunch.com – Socialspiel, the Austrian social games startup founded by ex-Rockstar Games employees, has announced a small additional funding round, and with it a change of guard at the top of the company. The new funding — €200,000 — is led by German angel fund FLOOR13, with participation from games industry “veterans” Clemens Beer and Mike Borras. It brings the total raised by the 2010-founded company to a little under €500,000. Of more significance, however, is that Borras has been recruited as CEO, taking over from co-founder Helmut Hutterer who transitions to the role of COO (IT news)
