You need technology advancements to push the boundaries of where esports can go, but you also need to find new marketing opportunities, like expanding into new demographics. The M.E.T. dual degree trained me for both.

    M.E.T. is a group of extremely hard-working and ambitious people, combined with an extraordinary entrepreneurial network. I want to create or join a startup, and one of the things that was really attractive about the program was that I could meet and learn from all these amazing entrepreneurs who have done exactly what I want to do.

    We are a very cooperative and welcoming group. When you walk into the M.E.T. office, there are usually people working on projects together, and you can always ask someone to read over your essay or help you debug some code. Everyone is willing to help.
