Jenna Johnson
Director of Partnership Strategy & Activation at Version1 + Minnesota RØKKR

Esports Trade Association has allowed our firm to network with several business owners, referral sources and potential clients within the esports space. Even through the challenges of COVID-19 we were able to make connections in the industry, and meet individuals who were interested in utilizing our services. We are thrilled with the additional exposure our firm has received in our local market and across the country within the industry.

Jared P. Vasiliauskas

As a sponsor of EsportsNext, we were thrilled to see the impact on our organization. Not only did we feel good about supporting the esports community, but the contributions from the Impact Fund helped us provide resources to support our pediatric patients and their families. It was a win-win situation for us, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with Esports Trade Association in the future.
