Leading esports and technology consultancies unite to help make the world of esports accessible to mainstream investment
Las Vegas, NV - March 25, 2016 - Catalyst eSports Solutions and Neomancer LLC today announced that they will be partnering to develop a gateway for brands to safely and reliably engage with the esports industry, bridging the gap between mainstream business and the rapidly expanding world of professional competitive gaming.
To kick off this endeavor, both companies are joining forces to present the “Up-Close: eSports” panel during the iGaming North America conference, to be held April 5-7 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where the team will present esports to a gathering of key stakeholders, consultants, regulators, and press at the crossroads of land-based and online gambling industries in North America.
“At Catalyst eSports Solutions, we’re committed to developing credible investment opportunities in the esports space and working with the industry’s top talent to bridge the gap,” said Drew Holt-Kentwell, Founder and Managing Director of Singapore-based Catalyst eSports Solutions. “Partnering with Neomancer means collectively pooling more resources and more talent to more effectively serve our clients.”
“Three years ago, we organized and presented the first sessions introducing fantasy and daily fantasy sports to the gambling industry at iGaming North America, bringing on stage the fantasy industry’s grassroots, the new trailblazing leaders, and the controversial. This year, we’re proud to work with Catalyst eSports Solutions to bring the next big thing—esports—to the gambling industry.” When asked why esports and gambling, Hai Ng, co-founder and partner at Neomancer LLC out of New Jersey, continued, “eSports is a multi-faceted fit to the gambling industry. Beyond the gambling aspect, esports brings a strong combination of entertainment, retail, social, and community to the industry. It fits incredibly well with both brick-and-mortar gaming resorts and innovative online operations, and it has the right target demographic to grow and revitalize the customer base.”
Going forward, Catalyst and Neomancer look forward to utilizing their combined knowledge of gaming markets and the strengths of their respective teams to help drive growth in the esports industry space. With massive year-on-year increases in every metric — viewership, engagement, revenue, and more — the interest level in esports continues to grow across mainstream industry and media. Opportunities for premium acquisitions and entrance into key verticals at this critical juncture will benefit from the navigation offered by the dynamic joint forces of Catalyst and Neomancer.
