Zestworld co-founder/CEO Chris Giliberti stated "In recent years, the comic book industry has boomed, producing global hits on a scale unprecedented in the history of entertainment. Contrast this enormous popularity and franchise value with the livelihood of the creators who invented the beloved characters that dominate our culture. It's time we equip this community with its own dedicated platform specifically tailored to the comics medium and its fans." $9.6 million funding has been raised from  Alexis Ohanian's Seven Seven Six, Polygon Technology, former TaskRabbit CEO Stacy Brown Philpot, Shari Redstone's Advancit Capital and Twitch founder Kevin Lin. Zestworld plans to offer creators support services, including business management, online community, digital publishing, virtual events, and rights management and NFTs.
