Description

Meet Yup.gg, Kickstart’s 39th investment!

The internet continues to fuel the growth of creative economies and this has given rise to a multitude of communities where content creators and content consumers are building relationships directly.

And nowhere is this truer than in the world of esports and gaming that have become high-growth emerging industries currently generating massive content from players and fans alike.

Our speaker this month is Rai Cockfield, CEO/Founder of Yup.gg, who will make us understand the opportunities that are available and how everyone can participate in this gaming and content phenomenon — so whether you’re a player, a fan, or a brand, join us next week on Wednesday, June 19th!

As always, we are re-stocking our fridge with beers and you can look forward to an evening making new friends, reconnecting with old friends, and swapping #startupPH stories!

Your Fridgemaster,

PIA BERNAL | Kickstart Community Manager
