My Advice

Being a Founder especially in the Esports/Gaming world is fun and exciting with lots of opportunity. However, it’s sometimes difficult to break into the industry since it’s still new and starting out. I advise you to go to as many local, global events, tournaments, conferences as you can and meet people. Network like crazy because you’ll learn where you want to be in the space. From a player, streamer, broadcaster, analyst, coach, designer, developer, Social Media Manager, Content Manager, Community Manager or the next Ninja or Dr Lupo!
