Episode details

Gaming has been a part of Ben Goldhaber's life since he started as a competitive player in his teens. He's stayed in the industry ever since, and after his experience as part of the founding team at Twitch through the Amazon acquisition, he saw firsthand the broad market opportunity, exponential growth in the gaming industry and most importantly saw what was missing: a centralized platform to get the best information on all things Esports. That's the engine behind his startup Juked, which Scott likes to compare to the Bleacher Report-for sports. Ben joins the the show to talk about how he came up with the idea, how the model works, monetization strategies, the rapid esports transition into the mainstream, gambling, and how you can invest in the company today through their crowdfunding campaign on Republic.
