      Esports Business Network becomes my.esport.biz   04/24/2018

      Welcome everybody,

      today we launched www.esport.biz, our growing commercial platform for the esport industry. While esport.biz is - and I am honest here - by far not where we imagine it to be, I am sure we are on a good path. With the same effort, we changed Esports Business Network to be the official community of www.esport.biz. Thus,  it now runs at my.esport.biz. I am sure there a still several bugs, but we will fix them in the coming days, and maybe weeks. 

      We are also working hard to update the community to give the community a large, large update, with several changes. This update is so big and extensive though, that it needs to be heavily tested against many other functions. This includes e.g. the new functionality for you to be able to log in to the shop and in the community with the same login credentials. 

      Please report us any issue to see!

Awkward requests

Marian Härtel


Sometimes meeting requests are awkward. I had, let’s call it company, calling last week and inquiring on eSports investment possibilities. Someone there must have heard about “eSports” and while it sounded interesting in the first glimpse, during the call I got the impression that they have no clue on what they are talking about and they just called to get information for free. While I do not mind to have nice talks with people in order to eventually get a business opportunity I really hate if somebody does not want to value work done and experience gathered.

After about 30 minutes on the skype call, I slightly mentioned that we might need to find an agreement on how I could get paid or what my advantage is from giving them all the information. Suddenly the call ended very quickly and I guess I should happy about it. Additionally, I am not sure if I should have helped them getting into contact with other people if they have an attitude of not being fair in business terms. With the recent growth of awareness of eSports and Gaming, everybody should be really careful to not trust the wrong people, just because he or she are mentioning big amounts of money.

Agreements should always be fair for both side, else it will be unlikely to be sustainable business relationship.
