We believe esports could exceed all amateur and professional sports worldwide within 5 years on multiple levels. We started this venture to serve the fastest growing fan base in the world, esports!


Esports In A Nutshell

Esports are competitive video games that have their own leagues, events, and audiences.

Much like traditional sports, esports have been captivating global audiences around the world with comparable viewership from both the esports enthusiast and the occasional viewer.


Even if you are not a gamer, we're betting some of your friends, associates, children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews are gamers. You may not understand esports or appreciate the pleasure others get from watching and playing, but you are smart enough to see it going on all around you and recognize that it’s not just a phase. Gaming is now ingrained in our global culture. It’s getting bigger and more widespread every day. 

The Esportz Opportunity

We have been working on this esports initiative for the past year, beginning with extensive research and continuing with visits to esports arenas and college esports programs. These efforts allowed us to get first-hand insights and create an esports company that targets some of the best opportunities with the greatest potential and lowest level of risk.


Now we're asking you to join us by investing in Esportz Entertainment Corp., an innovative online esports News and Entertainment network (Esportz Network.com) dedicated to providing global coverage of esports. Our Esportz Network digital broadcasting and entertainment platform under development will launch in June 2019.


We plan to cover professional and collegiate esports leagues, teams, and athletes along with the people and the companies behind the sport in a manner that has never been done before.

Headquartered in Irvine, California, we’re located at the epicenter of esports. We’re literally surrounded by the greatest names in esports game development, hardware, software, arenas, tournament play, Hollywood Studios and many others in California who drive the esports industry. 


We believe that an “all esports, all the time” broadcast network will offer plenty of interesting content for esports fans as these important industry players look to share their latest announcements, updates, and views. Visit our website for more information: www.esportznetwork.com.

Through our Esportz Pro organization, we plan to offer media training for aspiring gamers and esports athletes to help hone their media communications skills through direct instruction and an e-learning curriculum. 


Improving their ability to effectively represent themselves with sponsors and esports fans will have a big impact on their brand value. 


College is the new frontier for esports, and we plan to help advance collegiate esports. Working with a National Sponsor, we would roll out Esportz Pro Media Training Curriculum to 100  colleges across the US.

Our strategic partnership with Orai, signed on March 1, 2019, is an industry first and important in supporting and measuring the results of our media training and coaching. The app uses the latest artificial intelligence to help advance communication skills and reinforce lessons anywhere, anytime. They've already had great independent success with 4.6 stars on the App Store and 4.3 stars on Google Play.


All program attendees will be given the full functions of the Orai mobile app complementary to our services. Through the Orai backend analytics dashboard, we can view the performance of every student/client and create new mini-courses on the fly to further their training. The Orai App is customizable and will include our branding.


Esports apparel and related merchandise is another area of opportunity we see that will extend our brand awareness, and we intend to enter this exciting field at a time when competition is still limited. 


We plan to leverage our EZPRO brand for apparel, along with other brands that will emerge as our design and development process progresses. 


When it comes to creating apparel, being based in Southern California is a huge advantage, given the extensive local resources, merchandise design, manufacturing and retailing. We have created these examples of our clothing design with our ScreenWorks Orange County partnership.

We're ready to move forward with your help to fully capitalize Esportz Entertainment Corp. for success!

Having met our foundational requirements and confirmed the market potential for our business plan through our own research and industry research (which is included below), we believe it is now time to open the opportunity for investment in Esportz Entertainment Corp. to you, esports fans and investors through the Reg CF crowdfunding process.


While our new Delaware Esportz Entertainment Corp. has recently been established to meet the needs of our funding plans and to allow for new shareholders, we have a great deal of experience building successful companies and seasoned leadership.


All Esportz related intellectual property developed prior to February 8, 2019 is owned by Mindstream LLC, a separate entity, owned by Mark Thimming.  This includes USPTO pending trademarks for Esportz, Esportz Network, Esportz Pro and EZPro, Esportz related Domain Names, Esportz branding, graphic design and video, the Esportz Company Shopify website – www.esportznetwork.com, and Esportz Social Media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube).

On March 1, 2019, Mr. Thimmig, though his separate related party, licensed the use of this intellectual property to Esportz Entertainment Corp. for a period of a three-years. Upon conclusion of the three-year term, the parties have an option to negotiate a new agreement, which may include compensation. The assets will be contributed at their historical carrying value on the date of transfer


The agreement licensing Mindset LLC's intellectual property includes license of a children's book channel, StoryTimeWithMsBecky. The YouTube channel has historically provided monthly recurring revenue. The agreement also permits Esportz Entertainment Corp. use of all Esportz domain names, trademarks, branding, graphic design, video, current website, and social media sites that were acquired and developed by Mindstream LLC. 


Our existing channel relationship positions us well with YouTube, which is among the most prolific streaming platforms for online gaming, esports news, and entertainment. With a YouTube channel that ranks in the top 3% in the world, we have proven that we have capabilities and expertise to create and distribute online programming globally.

Esportz Media Broadcast Center

Our Esportz Network custom management, broadcasting, and tournament website is being developed with the help of an international design group specializing in esports web and mobile development. 


This gives Esportz Network an excellent team of developers who have considerable esports experience. We will continue development after the initial website and mobile app has been launched to provide new features and functionality. This will keep our website platform highly competitive and responsive to our global esports fans.


We are working with our realtor to select a building that will become our new Esportz Media and Apparel Center. We plan to configure the building to provide more space for our Esportz Network sets, training space for Esportz Pro media training, and EZPro apparel design and presentation. 


Computer generated concept image for our studio.

Over the past six months, the management team has built an incredible foundation leveraging the enormous resources, contacts, and talent available daily through our company founder at no cost. We’ve designed this company from the ground up to deliver for esports fans, gamers, and shareholders.


We don’t like debt, so we don’t have any. In fact, through March 2019, based on the YouTube channel revenue received through our agreement with Mindstream, LLC, we are profitable. We believe that winners need to have grit, work as a team, be disciplined, smart, efficient, and fast to market, so here are a few of the highlights of what has been accomplished in a short time.


This is not an arena investment! We have specifically built this business plan to address areas in esports where we believe there are significant opportunities and less economic risk to our company and our shareholders. We do not believe that the market will support the capital investment associated with building and operating most arenas at this time. Therefore, we will not use investor money for developing new esports arenas. While we plan to offer tournaments with prize money through our Esportz Network platform, the tournaments we plan to offer will be virtual and open to worldwide participation.

We launched Esportz Entertainment Corp. which includes, Esportz Network, Esportz Pro, and EZPro.


We undertook extensive online research to evaluate esports market opportunities and potential competitors.


We filed with USPTO for multiple trademark applications for Esportz, Esportz Network, Esportz Pro, EZPro. 

We assembled a leading management team supported by a dedicated Esportz staff.


We developed a comprehensive esports business model and detailed 3 year financial forecast.


We set up accounting, integrated payroll, banking and credit card processing for Esportz Entertainment Corp.

We established company operations in dedicated office space alongside the Ignite Agency.


We refined our business model as we continued our research and developed presentation decks to present the plan to investors.


We launched a company website along with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram Social Media.

We toured multiple esports businesses and arenas to identify the optimal esports business opportunities for our company and our shareholders.


We directed the purchase of 25 Esportz related Internet domain names for Esportz development.


We created a 13-Page White Paper covering Esportz Media Tips downloadable on the Website.

We acquired through Mindstream LLC, a YouTube Channel #1 in its category, StoryTimeWithMsBecky, which provides the company with immediate recurring revenue.


We established the Esportz Pro Media e-learning and webinar platforms through online providers, LearnWorlds and Webinar Genesis. 


We initiated national college sponsor Esportz Pro Media training discussions with Fortune 100/500 companies.

We designed the Esportz Network website platform, architected the structure and began development with a launch target of mid June 2019.


We began development of e-learning courses for colleges, gamers, and retail buyers. 


We have included in our facility site selection a high level layout concept design for our proposed Esportz Media and Apparel Center. 


We began initial development of our Esportz clothing line, focusing initially on our Esportz Pro Trainer Uniforms.


We signed an agreement with Orai mobile app to provide our Esportz pro clients with supplemental, measurable anywhere, anytime, media training skills reinforcement.


We interviewed crowdfunding platforms and selected StartEngine along with preparing all required Reg CF documents.

We setup an online Esportz branded clothing and merchandise line with a variety of offerings available through the current Esportz Network website. 


We surveyed over 100 Colleges to confirm the need for media training in their Esports program and received over 20 confirmations of interest. 


We worked with a local dbbmckennon, CPA firm, Mark Krohn, legal counsel, and StartEngine to complete offering requirements for Reg CF offering.

Esportz Network Platform

Esportz Network plans to offer an open online subscription-based service that is styled in part by identifying the best presentation of other leading sports networks to give esports news, headlines and entertainment shows the optimal and prospects for engagement. 


We plan to cover a wide range of global reporting on all aspects of esports and to deliver our content through many of the streaming and social network platforms that carry esports programming. Our plan is to curate Esportz Network content via a process that vets freelance reporters and their stories. We believe that our approach is unique to storytelling and enables us to capture the best of esports around the world.

 Key Features of Esportz Network Platform in Development:


  • Itemized news and information of all major esports games: teams, matches, & player pages
  • Coverage for both professional and select collegiate levels
  • Esportz Network tournaments which can be branded for sponsor participation.
  • An entire operating system for hiring, incentivizing and managing all reporters for approvals, stories processing, and payments.
  • Responsive for all devices and screen sizes
  • Designed from the ground up for multiple languages
  • Freemium model for both the casual and dedicated viewer

We have purchased a subscription to LearnWorlds.com to provide our custom branded e-learning platform for delivering a wide range of Esportz Pro media training and other online esports professional development programs. Providing online courses is a well established recurring revenue channel. We will be the first on the LearnWorlds platform to offer courses fully dedicated to esports.


For our sales and internal training requirements, we purchased a subscription to WebinarJam.com to provide our branded online Webinar solution. Our webinar capabilities will help to facilitate the efficient, cost-effective training and onboarding of reporters and other staff wherever they may be in the world. 


We plan to provide pre-recorded updates and programs for our staff, ensuring we have a team all moving in the same direction.

When the public thinks of esports, they think of kids in their basements running tournaments for pocket cash, but the reality of the situation is that esports is currently one of the fastest, evolving business industries that have ever been produced, and brands are all starting to catch up


When things are moving quickly, there are bound to be things that are neglected in that rapid speed. The accelerating global demand for quality esports content is not being satisfied, with the inconsistency from the varying coverage of each different esports game leading to a disconnect between the average casual gamer and an esports enthusiast. 


With Esportz Network, esports tournaments, coverage, and news will be made easily approachable and accessible to all viewers on a variety of different streaming platforms.

Another failing aspect of esports is that many gamers and entire teams lack proper media training and are failing their fans and their sponsors. Many gamers are often thrust from their living room to the spotlight without much thought about their presentation and professionalism, mostly being brought up via their skills playing their esports game of choice. 


Esportz Pro is looking to bridge the gap of the gamer and develop their media training skills to match their level of play on the stage.


We also took note of the fact that esports has not yet been identified as a sports clothing category, leaving an entire casual sportswear segment open for a more universal appeal. 


Much of esports apparel created is for specific teams, leagues, and games, but what is not currently being created is the casual wear for the players and gamers that want to represent esports as a whole, rather than a singular team or game. EZPro wants esports fans to show their loyalty to esports via merchandise, collectibles, and accessories. 

"Our competitive advantage is our people, those we work with every day, those who will be joining us in the future, and those who extend us a helping hand. We built a culture of creative energy that thrives on setting and achieving big goals, where people enjoy coming to work and are supported and recognized. It’s not lavish. It’s personal.”  

- Mark F. Thimmig, Chairman, CEO.

Given our experience in building successful companies and identifying emerging opportunities, we have identified the areas of the esports business that are both either early in their development or lack any meaningful number of competitors. These areas are also not as capital intensive as other areas of the esports business, and we believe they pose far less risk, along with more flexibility to capitalize on new developments. Below are company benefits each branch of Esportz Entertainment Corp. hopes to achieve:

Esportz Network


All Esports, All the Time targeting distribution on YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, Apple, and other popular social media channels.  

Esportz Pro


Esports Media Training and Strategy for gamers, teams, sponsors, event organizers and colleges.

EZPro


Esports Apparel and Merchandise for esports fans, and everyone else on the planet.

Esportz Network - Global Esports Industry Coverage 

7 Days Without Esports Makes One Weak

Esportz Network is planning to offer an ad, subscription, and sponsor model, with a daily online ESPN-style digital destination exclusively dedicated to global esports news, events, and entertainment.


On the news and entertainment front, there are few if any competitors with a dedicated esports program with in-studio and global reporting across multiple colleges and professional games and tournaments. 


Our plans for a free and paid membership model will keep us connected with our viewers and give members first access to our latest innovations.

 

We plan to provide our esports programming through our Esportz Network website, Podcasts, and other popular streaming channels. We plan to build out studio broadcast sets in our Media Center giving us unique programming options, as well as provide a professional setting for interviews with many of leading tech and gaming companies. 

Live Esportz Network Podcasting 

Our Esportz Network Global Podcasting platform is live and delivering exciting esports content daily.


In fact, we are the first to offer a daily esports minute on the radio. Our new "esports minute" hosted by highly regarded esports writer Mitch Reames was launched on OC Talk Radio on April 1, 2019, and plays several times per day bringing esports fans the latest news in esports from around the world.


Not only are we reaching esports fans through OC Talk Radio's audience, but we are also delivering our Esportz programming through a wide range of impressive podcasting services.


We see an exciting business opportunity to bring our Esportz Network - esports minute to many more broadcasters around the US as we continue to roll out and demonstrate the business model for this new innovation. 


It's time for esports fans to get more than the daily traditional sports headlines. Esportz Network is delivering the esports minute podcast along with more in-depth interviews with leading industry gamers, teams, colleges, and companies through social channels and Amazon Alexa. 


We also plan to use our Esportz Pro podcasting capabilities to deliver the latest in esports media training and tips for aspiring gamers, teams, college students, casual gamers and major brands jumping into esports. 


Our Fireside podcasting platform provides a full range of real-time download stats and analytics to help us maximize our performance and community reach. 


Listeners can reach our podcasts from our website: www.esportznetwork.com, directly through our podcasting platform at https://esportznetwork.fireside.fm/subscribe, or any one of the applications, social media, and websites that offer our podcast streams. 






www.esportznetworkpodcast.com

Esportz Network operations are within a few miles from Activision - Blizzard, the number one game development company in the world, and within one hour of Riot Games. Hollywood film studios, esports arenas, and many prominent game developers are also a short distance away. 


These organizations represent an abundance of top tier potential guests for in-studio interviews and topics for rapid coverage of new developments that esports fans want to hear about. No other esports news organization can offer that kind of engagement and informative programming for their followers/fans.


We have begun recruiting reporters and plan to recruit more than one hundred freelance reporters from around the world within the next 12 to 18 months. We plan to offer our freelance reporters an Esportz Network press pass and the opportunity to file pre-approved stories which we plan to select from to purchase along with the exclusive rights to publish and distribute through our Esportz Network channels. 


Our innovative approach could give us global coverage in multiple languages and the ability to reward, recognize and retain our very best reporters.

Esportz Pro - Media Training - Gamers, Teams, Colleges, Brands

Prepare, Anticipate, Dominate

Our team identified the need for media training along with media strategy for brands and sponsors looking to maximize their esports investment. 


Many young gamers have no experience in speaking with the media or effectively representing major brands. This is problematic for brands spending heavily in sponsorships, getting little recognition, not to mention gamers trying to create value in their career similarly to how other professional athletes have successfully done.

 

We also found a largely unmet need for media strategy and player/team training at the college level. Esportz Pro has an enormous opening to deliver the first truly innovative national college esports media program supported through sponsorship by a global brand.


This is a compelling opportunity for a sponsor to help us bring our media training to 100 colleges across the US. In doing so, they could be known and respected by many of the future professional esports athletes and their fans. Over 20 Colleges have already confirmed in writing their interest in having Esportz Pro for their esports program. 


There are a growing number of international corporations providing sponsorships, prize money and other means of marketing. We have been told that reaching this valuable demographic is important to many companies across all types of consumer products and services.

Our Esportz Pro trainers/coaches along with the head coaches will be drawn from the competitive gaming community and will undergo comprehensive media training so that we have gamers delivering training and coaching to gamers. 


Traditional media trainers are not likely to be competitive gamers, are too old and don’t speak the intricate language of gaming. They can, however, be helpful in training our trainers.

 

Trainers/coaches and head coaches will deliver the training in our custom designed uniforms that include branded shirts, hats, jackets, pants, and shoes. 


Our Esportz uniforms help our staff to more closely identify with the people they will be training and sets us apart from others while promoting our brand in a visually impactful manner.

EZPro Apparel And Merchandise

Why Have One Life When You Can Live Many!

This computer generated image represents our concept for display and design.

Esports branded clothing and merchandise has competitors but remains a new area for sports-related apparel. The industry focus has largely been directed at team or game brand specific clothing and merchandise. While we recognize the desire that fans have across all sports to purchase, wear and use player/ team branded items, we see a much larger market.


We plan to integrate Apparel and merchandise into much of what we do and one of the areas that can help build our brand recognition with esports fans. Plans call for EZPro to operate out of our Media and Apparel Center where a dedicated designer and staff to create our esports clothing, merchandise, and accessories lines. Manufacturing and retail store sales will be outsourced. 


Apparel and merchandise sales will also be available through our Esportz Network platform, where we plan to have an integrated online store. The online store plan is to offer sponsor-branded apparel and merchandise for sponsored tournaments, membership benefits, and other activities.

With the development of our Media Center, a wide range of shows will be created and streamed. Gaming companies, hardware and software companies, and every other organization with an interest in esports and with a message to share will be welcome on our program channels. 


The Esportz Network platform is being built with the latest technology and includes a host of benefits designed to encourage gamers to join our membership ranks. Integrated sponsor supported tournaments will give brands greater access to esports gamers and fans on a regular basis, while also providing revenue to the company. 


We see the opportunity to become a marketing powerhouse for brands that want to reach the esports community, by offering great, authentic products and value. There are many ways we can integrate brands into our sets, programming, prizes, member benefits, and shows. Some brands may want to provide products or services in exchange for things we can offer, helping us reduce capital outlays and achieve profitability. 

Esportz Pro is all about teaching and training gamers to maximize their personal and team brand value. This is an industry where many of the players are young and often lack the professional training required to get their personal story out and to build exceptional value that can attract major sponsors. 


Likewise, many brands entering esports have no experience dealing with the esports culture. Without the professional guidance that we can offer, brands will likely to miss opportunities to leverage their investment. We can also help sponsors develop a crisis management plan.  


While our course development is focused on esports, the addition of Orai is not only an industry first in esports, it’s also a game-changer in media training, skills building, and reinforcement. The Orai App keeps us linked to our clients, providing a wealth of data along with the opportunity to regularly offer and measure new course content. 

By concentrating on colleges across the US, supported by a National Sponsor, we plan to meet a need in addition to supporting education. For a sponsor, it’s an extraordinary opportunity to participate in the formation of many young gamers and future industry leaders, while being recognized for their dedication to education.


On the receiving end, gamers, support staff, faculty and college institutions all stand to benefit. It’s about competition, being a part of the future, and helping young people achieve their full potential.

The Power of Collaboration

Revenue and reputation through our three Esportz divisions work together to power growth across the enterprise.

Esportz Network plans to spread consistent global esports news coverage through various platforms including social media and mobile applications. Our plans call for content to be supported through sponsors, subscriptions, and advertisers through streaming services including our own along with YouTube and Twitch.


EZPro is the branded apparel and merchandise part of the Esportz Entertainment Corp., where we plan to provide gamers and esports fans with a diverse selection of clothing for all occasions. We plan to launch our new in-house store in our media center. The Esportz Network online store is being designed to provide access to the same gear and gadgets we offer before we widen to third-party retailers.

Esportz Pro plans to provide media training to those aspiring to work in esports: reporters, casters, brands, managers, and players. A 3-year agreement with a National Sponsor will help support our college curriculum. Colleges will benefit through this free sponsor supported program.


Our media training program incorporates brand strategy with proper media language and etiquette that will be reinforced through continuous training via Orai artificial intelligence technology. All parties will benefit as we work to enhance the skills of tomorrow’s esports stars, the distinction of a national sponsor, and the prominence of Esportz Entertainment Corp. Mastery of Game + Mastery of Media = Athlete Brand Value


We plan to offer Media training onsite or anywhere in the world for gamers, teams, tournaments, and sponsors. When participants come to our planned Media Center for professional development, they will further benefit from experience on our broadcast and interview sets.

It’s official: gaming has gone mainstream. According to Nielsen, 64% of the U.S. population 13+ plays video games on some device today. And that popularity is reflected in the videos people watch on YouTube. Two of the top five channels with the most subscribers worldwide are gaming-related. Gaming is a very popular spectator sport. According to Ipsos, 73% of YouTube gamers say they enjoy watching others play games. 


A great deal of our esports action will be streamed across several leading social platforms. The mother of all modern streaming sites, Twitch, is one of the most visited websites in the world at any given time. Twitch alone attracts 100 million new viewers per month. As an industry, streaming continues to grow immensely becoming one of the most popular and enjoyable ways to embrace gaming. 


In esports, almost every game has a goal, which is what keeps gamers in the game. When looking to upgrade their skills, gamers often watch videos with lots of insights and tips to help. According to Ipsos, 74% of YouTube gamers say they go to YouTube to learn how to get better at a game. These are statistics reported by Newzoo, a respected research firm.

Today’s gamers come from all walks of life, and anyone you know could be a casual or a competitive gamer—maybe your boss, your next-door neighbor, your favorite waiter or waitress. Gamers cannot be defined by their looks, skin color, location, or age because when you enjoy video games, you just enjoy video games. It’s that simple and it’s the best description of a gamer we can offer today. Unlike many other sports, gaming is inclusive, not exclusive due to the nature of its design.


However, we can say that millennials have grown up with computers, mobile phones, and gaming. This fact along with game designers’ ability to create something for everyone, makes this segment of the population the most likely group to contribute to massive growth.  


The implications for brands are real. Gamers are a highly influential audience with major purchasing power. For brands looking to reach women in esports, inclusivity is an important factor for female gamers, who often connect with other women to learn from. According to Adweek, “any brand not marketing in the esports world is already behind the curve.”

Here are a few key stats from Newzoo to help you appreciate the size of this market along with the projected growth.

Esports at the Collegiate Level

Varsity collegiate esports has ballooned. More and more universities are realizing the value of esports, which can increase a school's national profile and assist with marketing. It’s national, and growing.

For each of our offerings, we have a comprehensive marketing strategy in place. Our strategic relationship with the Ignite Agency gives us a powerhouse team on demand to help get us to support our marketing initiatives and achieve exceptional results. 


Beginning with a hard-hitting public relations campaign, we plan to enlist the media to help us deliver our message. We expect to publish frequent national press releases with new developments throughout the year to keep Esportz Entertainment Corp. frequently in the eye of the media. Our news and entertainment reporting will likely be seen by millions of esports fans around the world.

Our focus for the Esportz Network is targeted on building our brand, growing our viewing audience, adding subscribers, developing our tournament sponsor participation and attracting gamers to participate in regular tournaments.


We expect that this will come from quality reporting, regular streaming that is designed to appeal to the largest esports fan base and creating programs that are engaging and informative.


We plan to work closely with gamers, teams, game developers, tournaments, sponsors, hardware, software, and custom esports furniture makers to include them in our programming, benefitting all through our shared interest in engaging esports fans.  

Esportz Pro development is focused initially on securing our National College Sponsor for Pro courses and Orai App participation at 100 colleges across the US.


Once underway, we plan to follow with a strong push for online esports media training courses available through our eLearning portal, promoted heavily through our Esportz Network, social media, tournaments, and sponsorships. 


We also plan to focus on working with major brands to help them formulate their esports sponsor strategy and determine how they can get the most from esports investments in players, teams, events and promotional items.  

Mastery of Game + Mastery of Media = Athlete Brand Value

Apparel and Merchandise is very much a part of the esports scene. Once we complete our initial EZPro designs, we plan to move forward with manufacturing. 


Our Esportz Network platform design includes a dedicated online store where we plan to offer our products. This store will replace our current online store.


We expect to work with sponsors as well to create branded merchandise that will be provided to tournament participants. 


As we see traction across our line, we plan to explore retail store sales. Bringing our apparel and merchandise line to retail stores across a broad geographical marketplace will also help to build our category brands.

Our team has worked together for several years and is highly skilled, efficient and well regarded for their business development, branding, marketing, and public relations expertise. We have built a culture of creative energy that thrives on setting and achieving big goals for our company and our clients. It’s a place where people enjoy coming to work, are supported and recognized. 

 

We see our esports business as a perfect extension of the work we have been doing in Mindstream Studio and across Ignite, our global digital marketing agency for several years.

 

Our dedicated Esportz team works closely with the Ignite Agency staff, and we are fortunate to recruit some of the top Marketing, PR, Graphic Design, Video and engineering students from leading universities.

We also benefit from the close working relationship with UC Irvine, which was among the first colleges to establish a collegiate esports program. The UC Irvine College sports program has been ranked #1 in the US for College esports programs.


The founder of the UCI program and leader of a National Esports Organization has generously offered valuable strategic guidance as we move forward with our media training for colleges across the US.

Our access to Ignite Agency’s 6,000 sq. ft office, 22-member staff, state of the art technology, and global client base is an incredible advantage for Esportz Entertainment Corp. This allows us to leverage strategic resources on multiple levels to reduce cost, accelerate design, development, marketing, and PR for the entire Esportz business.


Esportz will further benefit from the valuable relationships and extensive media contacts that Ignite Agency has built over the past years.

Our Esportz organization, with its welcoming culture, excellent facilities, and benefits that we can offer through stock ownership and other workplace perks, make us an attractive employer. We are attracting a growing number of talented esports trained men and women at all levels to join us as we develop this company.  


Our team members are working with the Ignite Agency and providing daily support to our dedicated Esportz team as needed to further our business. Once the Esportz business is funded through this Reg CF crowdfunding campaign, we will add more dedicated esports professionals to our staff in accordance with our budget and staffing plans. Mark Thimmig will continue to lead the Esportz business.

The team: CEO Mark Thimmig along with key executives from his highly successful Conservaco LLC, and Ignite Agency bring a seasoned approach with exceptional skills. Esportz Entertainment Corp. enjoys a huge benefit with Mark’s 40 years of global leadership experience, extensive contacts and Ignite’s key executives working alongside, fully supporting the Esportz team. 


Mark knows how to build big, fast and profitable companies. He was one of the original members of the AutoNation leadership team who grew the company from $250 Million to $20 Billion in three years.  

The co-location association also brings with it very strategic relationships and connections, which Esportz can leverage to the fullest. 


The Ignite Agency is sought out by entrepreneurs and companies around the world to build their brand assets and launch their companies through crowdfunding, raising the money needed to advance their goals. 


Ignite has successfully raised millions for its clients in the past few years alone. This team has a culture and track record of success. Having the full backing of Conservaco, LLC and the Ignite Agency puts this early stage company in a very unique, strong position.

The numbers: No debt, disciplined expense control, recurring revenue from YouTube from Day 1. 


Once fully underway, our sponsored tournaments will provide income, along with membership plans with recurring revenue, advertising revenue, show sponsor and in show product placement revenue. 


The national sponsor revenue for college media training, if secured, is substantial and tied to a multi-year contract. Online, e-learning and onsite media training revenue are known sources of income across the media training industry.


Apparel and merchandise revenue will expand as the new designs are created and marketed. This is a very good margin business.

Huge market opportunity: The incredible growth of esports across multiple strategic measurements on a global basis is undeniable. In 2018 the global esports business turned in revenues of $134.9 billion with the US alone contributing $33.9 Billion. The total viewing audience for esports is expected to reach 580 Million by 2021 as reported by Newzoo.


The facts point to esports as an industry that will pass all other amateur and professional sports within 5 years. Esportz is seizing on that opportunity to become a force in esports entertainment programming now that there is a clear path forward. Esportz Entertainment Corp. can be among the esports industry leaders within that 5-year time span.   

Innovation: Esportz Network connects the physical and digital worlds of esports through integrated social media, mobile, and experiential technology, providing an enhanced esports fan experience, limitless magnification of memorable moments, and long-term value for fans, gamers, teams, event organizers and sponsors. 


Esportz Network plans to cover professional and collegiate esports leagues, teams, and athletes in a manner that has never been done before. The Esportz web and mobile platform will offer online sponsored tournaments with cash prizes, memberships that provide recurring revenue with exceptional benefits, apparel, merchandise, and many other features.


The Esportz Pro College program is an industry first, and the integrated Orai AI Mobile App will reinforce and extend our media training any time and in any place. Orai also provides us with an ongoing relationship with our clients, meaningful real-time data to build and deliver skill-building courses on the fly. 

Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to join others with an investment in Esportz Entertainment Corp. and pick up the bragging rights and platinum membership that come with ownership of an innovative global esports organization!

Based upon raising the Minimum and Maximum Funding Goals we expect funds to be used as noted below.

25% of the funding will be used for Marketing, and 10% of funding will be used for Research and Development to formally establish our brand and ensure we have competitive industry offerings globally. We are also exploring opportunities for Esportz Network distribution partnerships along with Esportz Pro initiatives. 

24% of funds will go into Working Capital to purchase services and resources needed on a daily and monthly basis covering each of the Esportz brands as reflected in our business plan and forecast. 

6% of funds will be used to pay StartEngine for fees associated with the Reg CF offering. 

20% of the funds for operation of all branches of the Esportz including, daily operating expenses, contracting with trainers handling the Esportz Pro media training, reporters and editors to bring our viewers the best esports stories for Esportz Network, and to the designers that will create the apparel and designs for EZPro.

15% of the funds will be used to make key hires for each branch of the Esportz brand. Hiring well-regarded industry experts within the esports scene will add to our brand value and help us accelerate our business development activities while also helping us avoid costly mistakes that a less experienced staff may make.

  1. Huge Global Esports Market is gaining traffic every day

  3. Exceptional leadership team - extensive finance, business launch & development experience

  4. Business branches work collaboratively maximizing investment and returns

  9. Opportunity to be an owner in esports may not come along very often – don’t miss out on the bragging rights that come with investing!

  10. Support a growing industry!

Athleta-Ed Endorses Esportz Media Pro For Nationwide Collegiate Sports Media Training (esports & traditional)

4 months ago

Good morning Esportz Nation!

We're excited to share with you something that just hit the press. 

We've been working on an initiative for a while that's going to accelerate our involvement with college esports programs and bring it to a new level. 

We've partnered with Athleta-Ed to bring an enhanced media training curriculum to both our collegiate esports program and their in-person and AI-driven platform. 

The esports athlete media interaction is different on multiple levels from traditional sports, therefore, we are developing unique programs that consider real-world applications for the success of all athletes. Our media training curriculum is being designed for traditional sports and separately for college esports programs.

Please check out the full article and like and comment:

And, as always, please share our campaign with your colleagues, friends, or your social networks -- we're excited to continue to grow with your help

Best regards,
