PvP: Where Gamers Unite

Our mission is to unite the global gaming community with the largest industry-specific social platform ever created - one true gamer social community.

gif 

We connect the world’s 2.7 billion gamers with each other through a lifetime digital gamer identity and social community - all together in one place.

The Problem


We Believe Gaming Lacks One, Unified Space to Connect

We believe there is no singular space that allows gamers to connect and build community.

Gamers need a foundational connection to pursue their individual aspirations of playing, streaming, and constantly improving.

The Solution


Discover. Connect. Game.

We are here to connect the world’s gamers with each other.


We do this with a lifetime digital gamer identity and social identity that is the one place where they meet, connect, build, improve, and grow together.

In our space, players can:

  • Build a profile

  • Showcase stats

  • Squad up with other gamers of their caliber

  • Grow their reach

The Market


Massive Opportunity 

We operate within a $57.9BN global market opportunity - that’s a fast growing industry.

And it shows. There is a 13.4% projected CAGR through 2023 (source). Not to mention, the 2019 consumer video game spend was three-times the size of the entire global box office, at $120 billion  (source).

Our Traction


Our Milestones

It’s fairly easy to say that gamers like us so far. That’s why we have:

What We Do


Unite the Global Gaming Community

Our core value is founded on creating connections.  


We do this through our Squad Finder feature that enables users to search for gamers, build teams, communicate through chat and many other features across games, platform and skill level.  

Our Twitch extension feature allows streamers to engage with their subscribers by tapping into the PvP app during their Twitch stream. 


Built around all of this are:

  • Gamer-tailored profile pages

  • Content search features

  • News feed

  • Messaging across mobile (Android and iOS) and desktop applications.

The Business Model


Freemium to Premium

We are pre-revenue and run a freemium model with plans to add in premium subscription and advertising monetization in the 2nd half of 2021.  


We are confident in this. That’s because we’ve done early testing on audience willingness to pay for and accept versions of these features, and have had good success.  

Our strategy is to continue to grow our user base via a freemium model, and then turn on monetization once at scale (soft target of 250k monthly active users).

How We Are Different


Industry Leaders

The gaming industry is fast growing and developing in new ways.  


Large players like Twitch and Discord have scaled quickly by focusing on in-game tools to support game play for streaming and chat. 

That means large social companies like YouTube and Facebook have also focused on supporting streamers. 


PvP is different in that we focus on connecting gamers and helping them to build teams outside of gameplay through our community - player to player.

The Vision


Our Roadmap

Our vision is to unite the global gaming community and exit within the next 2-5 years to another gaming or social media company.

gif

OUR LEADERSHIP


The Lead Gamers

Our team of leadership is made of up gamers - all with prior gaming & startup success.


On top of that, our investors and advisors behind us are experienced and influential - have led us to our current and growing success as a platform.

Why Invest


Breaking Boundaries

There is a power and excitement to connecting gamers - it has a global human impact.  


We are helping gamers meet across international boundaries, breaking down cultural barriers through shared gaming experiences and community.

Operating in a fast-growing market worth $57.9BN with 2.7 billion players - we are in the right place at the right time to build a gaming community.

Squad Finder is an industry game changer - Find your squad!

24 days ago

PvP’s Squad Finder feature is positioned to usher in a new era of collaborative gaming and, like everything at PvP, it’s designed around the player. This fan-favorite feature enables you to be algorithmically matched with gamers that meet your ideal schedule, skill level and game. Squad Finder is a key driver of user engagement on our platform because it allows gamers to instantly build the best squad possible and maintain those squads over time.

To date PvP users have created 3600 Squads!  

Squad Finder's power and simplicity make it the first feature of its kind and it’s popularity on PvP speaks to the growing overlap between the fast growing gaming market and social media. Competitive gaming is now generating massive audiences (~646 million by 2023) and players are looking for a way to connect, share highlights and create a lifetime digital identity - all in one place.

“Squad Finder is the most popular feature because it removes the barriers for gamers to connect, improve their skills and grow their audience” - Gabe Kruse - PvP Head of Product

CEO Phil Stover on the Top 5 Growth Indicators for the Gaming Market

about 1 month ago

Check PvP CEO and gaming industry thought leader Phil Stover’s recent article on the massive potential for growth in the gaming market. In Phil’s article “How Much Bigger Can the Gaming Market Get?” he highlights 5 important trends that point towards incredible opportunities for growth. 


Check out some of the highlights from the article:

  • Industry leaders like PlayStation and Xbox are starting to abandon the “Castle Wall” mentality to allow for cross-platform play. This new development, popularized by Fortnite, will lead to more platform-agnostic development of games and platforms like PvP.

  • Massive demographic shifts are afoot! Today, more than 60% of adults are gamers, with 44% of Americans over age 50 enjoying games at least once a month. The lockdown that came with the COVID-19 pandemic further sped up this adoption, and it seems like adults do not have to give up on their love of gaming as they enter the workforce.

  • Gaming is now considered a legitimate sport. Positive and much-needed changes in gamer culture — and a worldwide pandemic — have accelerated our willingness to accept gaming as a legitimate sport.

about 1 month ago

Join us on Tuesday, June 22nd at 1 PM PST for a Live Investor Webinar featuring PvP.com CEO, Phil Stover and 3 other disruptive startups from some of this year’s fastest-growing markets. Attendees will get an inside look at PvP’s 2021 product roadmap and rise of platforms in the massive gaming market . Plus,Phil will conduct a live investor Q&A after the presentation.

  • Obvious Wines - Obvious Wines simplifies wine through education and transparency. Built on the foundation of simplicity and sustainability - they aim to make it easier for you to enjoy wine, and its culture.

Gaming Industry grows to $300B after pandemic surge.

about 2 months ago

Massive industry growth and a shift toward platforms that connect gamers have created strong tailwinds for PvP.com as we ramp up new user acquisition. 

PvP.com is at the forefront of the evolution of the $300B gaming market. A recent study by Accenture highlighted two industry trends that align with our mission: new gamer growth and the shift towards platforms that allow gamers to connect. The study found that over 500 million new gamers have joined the marketplace in the last three years, and predicts an additional 400 million more by 2023. In addition, the emergence of new gaming platforms is pushing the industry from a product focus to becoming experience-oriented. New players are looking for ways to connect and share their gaming experiences.    

"We're seeing the emergence of gaming as an ecosystem of superplatforms where players can meet, communicate, watch live-streamed concerts, shop or listen to music." -Robin Murdoch, Accenture
