The esports innovation organization Level 256 announced that applications to join the platform’s fifth cohort have officially opened. Similar to Level 256’s previous cohorts, the fifth edition will look to develop the next generation of esports entrepreneurs. Successful applicants will gain help and support from Level 256’s partners. According to the release, the business looks to act as a “catalyst for innovation” within the esports ecosystem.
The application process is expected to run until March 15th. Following the deadline, Level 256 and its partners will select candidates to go into oral exams that consist of pitching projects in front of a jury. The Jury will be made of representatives from Level 256, the platform’s partners, and experts within the esports and innovation sectors (business angels, VC, financers). Finally, those selected at the end of these oral presentations will be able to join Level 256 according to the support formula chosen, meaning its “seed” formula for young projects or its “take-off” formula for already structured projects.
Level 256 has announced that the number of projects selected each year is not fixed and that individuals can apply on the platform’s website. Along with the information regarding the application process, the platform also detailed certain themes that shareholders may have an interest in.
The selected themes include corporate social responsibility, new technologies, player & spectator experiences, practice development, as well as audiences, and broadcasting.
