Eunice Chen, the former Riot Games Event Manager and current cloud9 consultant, launched Enlight.gg, a new platform designed to support people who want to start their esports careers.
The first initiative of the platform will be its “alpha class,” which begins on Monday 9 November. During the six-week free school, two meetings and salutation appointments will be held with Chen, a virtual event every two weeks, and a mentoring of many seasoned industry veterans.
Overall, the project aims to educate participants who have just begun their esports journey and adapt them to take action in this field.
“I am excited to merge my work experience and passion for helping others create a culture of information transfer in esports,” commented Eunice Chen, former Marketing VP of Cloud9 and the founder of Enlight.gg. Enlight is the forum I would like to be driven and trained as I grew up in the industry and dreamed of becoming a gamer.
“My aim is to eliminate obstacles to the exchange of expertise for esports veterans and to access this training through next-generation sports professionals.”
The website of the platform illustrates and teaches some of the subjects that include understanding the environments of the sports, career planning, talent management, and acquisition, plus management of social media. In addition, the platform will include tracks on sports law, tours, and event talent in the industry to ensure that preparation is offered for the enhancement of the overall esports ecosystem.
