Esports continues to be a leader in advancing media technology, yet the gaming community continues to struggle in creating a singular hub for viewers to check out all their favorite games and for there to be a singular hub for gaming education. With the market as large as ever and continuing to grow, Batch 26 companies Gamerzclass and Juked are working towards creating the next big hubs in esports. 

Giving You The Coach You Always Wanted – Gamerzclass

Professional esports players know how challenging and competitive teams can get, from local club teams to college to the professional level. Compared to more traditional sports like football or baseball, esports does not have the same kind of established coaching and educational infrastructure. Gamerzclass hopes to change that and accelerate gamers the path to the top of their sport.  

Gamerzclass allows users to play their favorite games at the highest level with help from top-tier Esports professionals. The platform gives gamers the opportunity to learn from the best gamers from around the world, guiding the fast-growing gamer community their way to the top of the leaderboard.

The All-In-One Platform for Esports – Juked

Esports fans have been waiting for an all-in-one platform that gives them the opportunity to follow the games they care about most, whenever they want. Started by one of the founding members of Twitch, Juked aims to provide a seamless platform that makes following everything going on across the top 30+ esports titles as easy as possible. 

In an extremely distributed network of streaming providers, professional leagues and more, a centralized hub has been a desire from esports fans for a while. From the company’s experience, fans have raved about the service since so many of them can relate to the pain of logging onto so many different sites just to keep up with their favorite games. 

As the startup prepares to graduate from the Batch, they hope to build the web/mobile destination for esports fans, centralizing everything needed to enjoy esports into one place for the first time.
