On Wednesday the 21st of November 2018 we kicked off our gaming and e-sport facility with an initial sponsorship investment of KES 0.25 million to support the Ace Pro Inc. (under Two Digital Ideas) gaming and e-sport tournament - the “E-Lig University Series”. This sponsorship will cover Season 1’s technical setup, public relations and marketing, as well as to contribute to the prize pool.
Mr. Fanuel Opiyo O., the director of Ace Pro, says, “HEVA’s new facility for e-sports will go a long way to growing the industry in Kenya. We are look forward to hosting 3 tournaments over the next 3 months as part of the first season. We are also looking forward to a next level partnership with HEVA.”
Through our new facility, HEVA looks to support tournament organizers, game developers, and spectator activations in order to accelerate the growth of this dynamic sector. Mr. George Mars Aloo, Insights and Innovations Manager at HEVA Fund, adds, “We’re very excited to become part of this fast-growing industry at this crucial time in its development. There’s a lot of potential in this sector.”
HEVA has remained at the forefront of helping producers of cultural goods, services and experiences to build high-value, profitable businesses.
