My name is Alex Fletcher, the founder and president of Esports Group, LLC. As a lifelong gamer, athlete, and entrepreneur I’m proud and excited to be apart of the esports industry. Like many others, my story began with a boy and his video game console. For me, it was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that set ablaze my love for gaming. To this day, few memories top the hours I spent absorbed in the 16-bit heaven laden with titles like “Super Mario World 3” and “Star Fox.” From those early childhood years to adulthood, I’ve watched gaming progress from being considered something “you grow out of” to mainstream cultural movement, and have enjoyed every second of it.
