100 Thieves has just announced that Rachel "Valkyrae" Hofstetter and Jack "CouRage" Dunlop have become co-owners of the esports organization.
According to 100 Thieves' recent tweet, the two content creators have been "integral to our success as an organization" over the past few years. The accompanying video showed the two popular streamers looking like bosses and staring intensely into the camera, esports style.
On CouRage's own Twitter, he showed a bit more emotion about the exciting news. He stated that it's a "great honor" to be a co-owner along with Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Valkyrae, and rapper Drake, among others.
"I love this organization with all of my heart and I can't wait for more great years to come," CouRage said.
In a follow-up tweet, CouRage stated that he got his first game-related job six years ago as an unpaid intern. Now, he's a co-owner of one of the biggest gaming organizations in the world.
"And we're just getting started," he added.
Valkyrae shared her own sentiments as well. According to her tweet, she has been with 100 Thieves for almost three years but never would have expected to become a co-owner of the organization.
"I'm proud to be one of the first women co-owners in esports and beyond excited for our future together," she exclaimed.
The news was met with a lot of positive support and applause from the esports community. Valkyrae is one of the top female streamers out there, even beating Imane "Pokimane" Anys on YouTube. CouRage is also big on YouTube, with 3.3 million subscribers thanks to his gaming and variety videos.
"I feel very lucky and fortunate," Valkyrae said.
