What’s better than having Shark Tank‘s Mark Cuban backing your startup? How about landing Ashton Kutcher as an investor?

That’s exactly what happened to e-sports company Unikrn (pronounced “unicorn”) Tuesday. One of the startup’s existing investors reduced their stake in the company so that Kutcher’s Sound Ventures could buy into the Series A round that closed in June. Unikrn did not disclose the name of the investor or firm with the reduced stake, but existing backers include 500 Startups, Advancit Capital, Freelands Group, Indicator Ventures, and Australia-based Tabcorp, one of the world’s largest publicly-listed gaming companies.
