Led by a desire to solve challenges through game-changing innovation, AceZone founders Christian Poulsen and Søren Louis Pedersen fell in love with the world of esports after attending their first live event. What they saw in esports was an industry full of passion and energy, with the opportunity for a brand to rethink the needs of the athlete in an ever-evolving sport.
Excited by the possibility, Christian and Søren immersed themselves in the industry. Attending esports events and meeting those with a long history in the industry, their aim was to understand how they could fuse a legacy of innovation with deep industry expertise, to help take esports to the next level.
One of those industry veterans was Frederik Byskov. Combining with Frederik, they began assembling a diverse team of experts spanning not only esports but also deep into software, hardware and high-end product development.
This unique blend of skills coupled with the humility to listen to what the industry needed created a desire to deliver products and services that would serve a new generation of esports athletes.
In January 2018, AceZone was born.
