Industry Landscape: Video Gaming & Esports (11.13.2019)

Note: This infographic has been updated.

Earlier this year we created an industry landscape infographic to showcase the multitude of verticals & companies that are shaping the future of esports & video gaming.

Today, we’re updating the infographic. We want to periodically update this with new companies in the space and make sure we update it with companies we may have missed in the previous post.

Please feel free to reach out to us regarding companies you feel we may have missed or any other ways we can improve this infographic to more accurately reflect the space.

The Ecosystem’s Infrastructure

The industry landscape for video gaming and esports is vast and it can be easy to overlook the plethora of technologies, companies, and individuals who help make all of this possible (especially in the background).

Today, there are many technologies & service providers who are providing the infrastructure, “picks & shovels”, and utilities that will take the esports & video gaming industry to the next stage of growth.

Konvoy’s investment focus: “picks & shovels”

Here at Konvoy Ventures, we are focusing our investing efforts primarily on those “picks & shovels” who are building the infrastructure for the next chapter of video gaming and esports. Alongside the community as well as the game creators, these companies are helping to shape the ecosystem today and where we’re headed tomorrow.

We looked at the ways audiences are monetized, games are built, how the professional scene is developing, how data is being used, and more. The companies listed above are not only facilitating but also benefiting at varying levels (revenue, raising capital, or both) from this industry’s growth.
