Everybody in the scene knows me as “Heflamoke” . I spawned out of the primordial soup of competitive gaming in the late nineties, which later took shape and we started to called it “esports”.
Throughout the almost 2 decades lasting journey I have explored every corner of the industry and eventually found myself as an entrepreneur mainly utilizing that very set of experience. The esports industry is, even with everything we achieved the last years. still largely unexplored with great potential.
The ventures I create or advise mostly settle in new markets, new technologies or proven business models / products from other industries crossing over. ” … Where No Man Has Gone Before …” – Is one of the motives I have in mind with every project I choose to support or create.
