If you are curious about eSports, then you don’t want to miss this week’s episode of Hyper Curious with Challengermode CEO and co-founder, Robel Efrem, a curious, determined, funny, kind guy, who’s also very competitive and loves playing computer games. 

Over the last decade, Robel founded two companies, is a three-time nominee for ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year,’ and after a successful exit from his first company co-founded Challengermode in 2014. Today, Challengermode is making waves in the future of sports, because they’re on a mission to make esports truly accessible for all the key stakeholders in the industry - players, organisers and game developers. 

“We believe that [eSports are] going to be the biggest sport in the world. For it to reach its full potential, it needs to become much more accessible than it is right now.”

In today’s episode, Robel talks about why eSports is the next frontier of traditional spots, the experience of exiting a company when you're in your 20s in order to start a new business that's more connected to your passions, and the importance of trust, kindness and data when developing a partnership with your co founder.

“One of the qualities that I value, besides being very confident at your work, is just being a kind human being. It's a very underrated quality, and it captures a lot of what's important for us here.”
