To the esports community,
You might be wondering who and what is Espo. If so, we're very grateful for your interest and we would love for you to be a part of our journey.
We are a tech start-up with a vision to bring esports fans to the heart of the action alongside their favorite idols. To do this, we are developing an immersive fan engagement platform for the esports community launching in September 2020.
Over the last several months, we have been operating in 'stealth mode' and we conducted interviews with hundreds of esports fans from around the world to ask them about their esports fan experience. We asked fans a number of questions including:
From the very beginning, we have wanted to build a community-driven company that will develop a fan engagement platform for esports fans, specifically designed around their desires and that will go the extra mile to enhance their fan experience.
Our vision is to bring esports fans to the heart of the action alongside their favorite idols.
Our findings from these interviews resulted in the coming together of a secret concept for a first-of-its-kind platform, which would focus on rewarding collaboration between world-class esports teams, players, fans and corporate sponsors.
Realizing early on that our platform would require active involvement and participation from top players, teams and sponsors in addition to esports fans, we interviewed these key parties as well. In order to more deeply appreciate their priorities and mindset, we wanted to listen to their individual perspectives and better understand the challenges they face in the esports sector.
The insights we gathered from fans, players, teams and corporate sponsors were invaluable to us and we spent a considerable amount of time studying this information. After all, we felt that we could only truly design and create an impactful fan engagement platform for the esports community if it was capable of addressing the needs and challenges of each of these parties.
We are currently at a very exciting stage of development in bringing Espo to you!
This summer we are securing partnership agreements with world-class teams and players, creating our own community with generous opportunities for members to receive Espo loyalty points and we are working with corporate sponsors and our partner teams and players on new and exciting sponsorship deals – all before the launch of our platform in September.
It's definitely going to be an action-packed summer for us, but we honestly couldn't think of a better way to be spending it! In our opinion, the esports sector is in a very interesting and promising period of its evolution. Not only is the sector expanding on several fronts, it's also maturing with the emergence of creative and interconnected solutions, which will play a fundamental role in driving value and sustainable growth for all corners of the esports community.
On behalf of everyone in the Espo family, I wish to express what a privilege it is for us to be devoting ourselves to building a new and innovative company in a space we love and have so much passion for!
