    Company: Emspire eSports
    Brief Description:
    As the name suggests the focus of our products is on the emerging eSports gaming scene. Currently we are producing a range of gaming applications used for practising and improving specific skills used in eSports competitions on titles such as Counterstrike and Warcraft. These training devices will be marketed to amateur and professional eSports enthusiasts alike.

    Our primary production platform is the iPhone. We will also be looking to expand these applications to other mobile gaming devices and platforms such as Windows 7 Mobile, iPad and Android.
    The current intention is to develop the applications in Flash using Action Script 3, and use the Adobe CS5 iPhone Packager to convert them to native iPhone applications, in order to make the applications easily portable to other platforms. I am not a programmer and I am happy to discuss this and other options with programmers that come on board for the project.

    The Team:
    Riley James(me): Project Lead / Producer.
    University student studying a bachelor of Business: Entrepreneurship.
    Currently in my final year. (3rd year)
    2 years experience in the eSports gaming industry
    Gaming industry trade show experience
    Gaming history: Quake 1/2/3/4, Action Quake 2, Counterstrike 1.6/Source, Call of Duty 3/4/5/6. Many titles were played at a semi-professional level.
    I have experience on both the Xbox-360 and PC platforms.
    In my role I will handle the following areas:
    Sales and Marketing
    Team and resources coordination
    Community development and monitoring
    Product design
    Idea generation
    Company vision and direction

    My experience in the eSports gaming industry was generated from my work founding and launching an online Xbox-360 gaming league in association with Cybergamer.com.au. In the role as head administrator I took the Xbox-360 division of Cybergamer.com.au from 0 14,000 members and over saw the necessary growth in staff from myself to over 80 staff members. The most significant experiences I gained through my 2 years at Cybergamer were:
    Development and monitoring of a growing gaming community
    Development of competitive rulesets for a range of games. Development of rulesets required extensive testing (similar to QA testing) and response to community feedback.
    Hiring, coordination and management of a large team of volunteer staff members.
    Business to Business communications through obtaining sponsorships , creating marketing opportunities and building partnerships. Most notably with Microsofts Xbox-360 division.
    Coordination of marketing and advertising resources.
    Experience in successfully running and managing a trade show exhibition (eGames Melbourne)

    My aspirations on completing University are to work in the gaming industry as a game producer. As such I am looking to develop my skills and gain some relevant experience working within a development team.
