OVERVIEW


Building a Massive Esports and Gaming Community

g

We designed Gamelevate to be the premier esports and gaming hub for esports fans, players, content creators, streamers, teams, and businesses. We deliver unique insights into the top esports gaming titles, linking users to highly detailed information on specific events, teams, and players through our database. 


Our leadership team is made up of a group of avid gamers and esports fans passionate about using our in-depth knowledge to create the best possible platform for gamers like ourselves. Together, we deliver a dynamic, satisfying experience to gamers and esports fans everywhere.

The Problem


Current Esports Databases Need an Upgrade


Currently, based on our research, the gaming industry only has one other destination for a comprehensive database of the global esports system: Liquipedia. However, their technology is based on wikis, an outdated text-based interface. 


Today, games are now the number one source of entertainment among Gen Alpha. As esports gamers skew increasingly younger, users demand a more interactive database using modern technology and dynamic videos and images as opposed to plain text.

The Solution


A Cutting-Edge Platform for the Gaming Community

Using PHP database coding, we built an interactive and engaging database for esports gamers. Our cutting-edge design embraces video and image content in order to draw in the young audiences that make up the future of the gaming industry. Rather than simply reading articles about esports, our users get the opportunity to connect with their favorite professionals via the GMVTHub database. 


Once we reach our baseline viewership, we believe we will be able to generate revenue through advertising, paid sponsorship, and paid membership. Additionally, our affiliate program collaborates with leading equipment companies in the gaming industry to link them to professional gamers that use them. We do this primarily through advertisements and featuring links for purchase on professionals’ profiles to the equipment they use.

The Market


A Massive, Fast-Growing Industry

Source


The gaming industry is projected to value at over $32 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 12% (Source). 


Esports is a fast-growing segment within the gaming industry, predicted to value at $2.89 billion by 2025 (Source). By 2024, the esports community is expected to grow to nearly $286 million, with $46 million in the US alone (Source).

Our Traction


An Enthusiastic Community with Strong Partnerships

g

Since our launch, we have grown to over 20,000 page views per month, with 164,000 views since May 2021. Our sister company GMVT/Hub receives over 383,000 monthly Twitter impressions. 

We have also developed strategic partnerships as affiliate marketers for some of the top industry brands, including Lenovo, Acer, SecretLab, Razer, and many more. 


In addition, we recently launched our newest feature: a public esport business directory. According to our research, it’s the first of its kind in the industry.

Why Invest


Revolutionizing the Esports and Gaming Industry


We see Gamelevate becoming the world’s premiere hub for esports information and content. We believe we are at the forefront of the growing esports community, incorporating inclusive and diverse thoughts into the Gamelevate platform. 


With a fast-growing community and one of the largest databases for gaming and esports around, we are seeking to lead the multi-billion dollar esports industry into the future.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
