eSports Business Accelerator™ – eSports pitch is focused on sports, education and technology.’s non-traditional eSports business accelerator is focused on inclusion, innovation and incubation for eSports projects. We leverage our relationships in the sports and education sectors and understanding of the urban landscape. We firmly believe that IP (intellectual property) is the currency of the future. Urban creativity and innovation have yet to be tapped and it is ready to explode with new ideas and companies of the future.

Our goal is to find individuals, companies, and projects worthy of investing in. Then we prepare them to raise capital to invest in under served groups, women, and minorities who are innovators. We want to address the issues of a lack of diversity on the investment side, as well as the lack of a diverse pool of founders of companies, especially in the technology sector. We help develop processes for the individuals and organizations. We help companies grow in ways that will ensure success. We are dream builders and facilitators of innovation. We are seeking to align with companies, investors and funds that understand that change and disruption can be profitable.

Our urban pitch events and new web series are focused on finding talent and companies that can make an impact and be profitable by tapping into under served sectors. We are a resource for trendsetters, investors and companies in that space.
