Rivals HQ Launches Virtual Accelerator for Gaming and Esports Startups

Rivals HQ, an incubator and accelerator studio purpose-built for new gaming and esports ventures, has launched a new virtual accelerator program: Rivals HQ Anywhere. Rivals HQ Anywhere provides new ventures in gaming and esports a unique set of business growth and maturity services, regardless of geography.

Rivals HQ is unusual in the incubator/accelerator space for several reasons. First, it is focused specifically on gaming and esports. Second, it takes a studio-style approach: a smaller number of members at any given time, more hands-on collaboration and support, and a flexible timeline. Finally, Rivals HQ provides services uncommon in other programs, such as content creation and brand/marketing development.

But what do you do when a global pandemic makes physically joining an accelerator impossible? And what if you are a startup that cannot relocate? “We’re eager to welcome new members at our facility in Huntington Beach. We also know that there are some killer early stage companies far away from Southern California, great matches for our virtual solution,” noted Jon “JB” Bukosky. Bukosky, an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience in gaming, esports, lifestyle brands, and film/content production, is one of Rivals HQ’s founders and senior advisors.

The entrepreneurial leadership of co-founder Niraj Bhatia drove the push into a virtual offering. “Everyone involved with Rivals HQ is deeply passionate about the gaming and esports industries. Our vision is to give back to the community we love by growing the next generation of disruptive businesses. Rivals HQ Anywhere helps us fulfill that purpose without the limits of physical distance.”

Early interest in Rivals HQ Anywhere covers a diverse range of business types, including B2B esports support software, new team organizations, media and content providers, and augmented reality. Rivals HQ Anywhere is currently accepting new member applications at https://rivalshq.gg/application-step-1/.
