Member Testimonials

ESTA has changed the way that I do business within esports, allowing me to network and talk to other decision-makers within businesses inside and outside of esports, which really just allows everybody to connect. Team 7AM has already gained two sponsors from ESTA, one being from a networking event, and the other being from the EsportsNext Conference. If you want to push your esports business forward then I highly suggest you get in touch and get involved. It will change your business.

ESTA has allowed our firm to network with several business owners, referral sources and potential clients within the eSports space. Even though 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.
