Dave Martin, Director of Esports Global and TCD judge commented on the decision, saying “…we felt TEAMS had a scalable offer that brought a potential real return to publishers which enables individuals to stay within the titles and find new friend groups. The growth opportunity is phenomenal.” Despite not be crowned winners, the other startups were afforded the opportunity of being apart of the ESI Digital Summit, the largest online esports conference to date. They were also able to raise awareness about their business, make valuable connections, and possibly find investors. Sam Cooke, Managing Director and Co-founder of ESI, shared similar sentiments about the event, saying “This is what The Clutch Digital is all about, allowing promising startups to present their vision and product to people of all positions in the industry – especially investors and those who’ve been successful in business…” In the end, all five judges decided unanimously that TEAMS offered exceptional value to the esports community.
