The first time the team at Inven Global hosted and produced Inven Global Esports and Academia Summit, we worked closely with collegiate esports leaders and communities to identify what types of resources and opportunities are most useful when embarking on a competitive gaming career.
While most everyone knows the potential for growth and career development within collegiate and academic gaming, the pathways towards reaching that potential is often unclear and lacking reliable guideposts. This is the central industry problem IGEAS is working to fix. The feedback from past attendees was clear -- everyone wants more engaging networking that leads to practical opportunities.
AS IGEAS returns in 2021, our summit is now a 3-day virtual event divided by specific esports industry tracks designed for all manners of gaming disciplines. Our sessions feature real esports, gaming, cosplay, and streaming professionals who, in any other scenario, would likely miss your DM. At IGEAS, however, their mission is simple -- pass on as much practical advice and valuable information to the next generation of working esports and gaming professionals!
Any aspiring esports professional or current industry worker looking to expand their network can benefit from IGEAS, check out some of the sessions below:

How do I attend IGEAS 2021?
