Investors, entrepreneurs and esports enthusiasts are trying now more than ever to break into esports and make an impact. Even during a global pandemic, the gaming industry has increased in popularity, viewership, investment, and the market has seen unprecedented support from the traditional sports world. As the industry grows, so will the community around it. There has been a huge increase in those looking to create a career in this cutting-edge world. So how does anyone “break into” the esports scene? How does one go about building a stronger and impactful ecosystem? How do we educate, equip, and empower the next generation of esports thought leaders and professionals – in the business of esports and competition. With such a large influx of companies (both endemic and non-endemic) trying to find their space in the industry and individuals fighting for their chance to make their mark; the industry can feel complex, making it easy to lose focus. Finding or building the right ecosystem balances the complexity of the industry and positions you to enter the space fundamentally and meaningfully.
