Funko is built on the principle that almost everyone is a fan of something and the evolution of pop culture is leading to increasing opportunities for fan loyalty. They create whimsical, fun and unique products that enable fans to express their affinity for their favorite “something”—whether it is a movie, TV show, video game, musician or sports team. By infusing their distinct designs and aesthetic sensibility, Funko is able to operate one of the industry’s largest portfolios of licensed content over a wide variety of product categories, including figures, plush, accessories, apparel and homewares.

“Funko’s innovative product design and market positioning have disrupted the licensed product markets and helped to define today’s pop culture products category,” said Nelson Griggs, President of the Nasdaq Stock Exchange. “As the home exchange for next generation consumer brands, we’re proud to partner with them on their journey as a public company and watch them continue to make strides in their industry.”
