THE OUTSIDER PROBLEMS
Navigating the esports landscape is tricky. It’s difficult to understand what the true & genuine opportunities are, and what the ROI will be for your brand or organisation.
Most esports operators are busy doing what they do best, and finding the right fit or perfect business partner can take extensive time and energy.

At a glance, and without a full understanding of audience diversity, esports & gaming properties may not seem like a viable fit for certain brands or organisations.
