Our Team

Ben Rubinstein – c0-founder / community specialist

Ben began competing in organized competitive multiplayer games when he was 13. He started out in a niche World of Warcraft community and felt compelled to take it one step further. When he turned 18, he decided to redirect his focus and began building online esports and gaming organizations. His passion for learning and building communities quickly turned into a career. His organizations grew organically and eventually he realized a natural talent for leadership, organizational development, and an ability to inspire people towards a common goal.

By the age of 21 he founded two businesses, a gaming website and an esports league. Within the first year, he realized a profit, sustained 30,000 active monthly users and raised thousands of dollars in funds for tournaments. Inspired, he sold his businesses and moved from his small farm town in Massachusetts to the Nations capital. Within the first few months, he became a brand ambassador for NRG Esports and built a powerful and public network of local industry leaders. He was also featured in the Washington Post as a key local industry leader. 

Ben has worked with prominent, local companies such as Events D.C. and The Entertainment and Software Association. He has previously been tasked to provide consulting services for the International Olympic Committee, top Overwatch streamer Kephrii, and local colleges, high-schools and businesses. He served as the Vice President of Institutional and Community Development, an executive position, by the age of 26. A role that enabled him to leverage everything he had learned in the past 12 years and become a pivotal leader within the local esports industry.
