The story

Good Gaming Leagues offers a tournament organisation and management platform for competitive online gaming. Gamers can compete in tournaments and leagues against each other for cash prizes. Good Gaming Leagues currently caters for the top games in the e-sports industry.

The start-up was founded by third year Computer Science students, Gavin Corkery, Adam Doran and Seamus Dwyer.

The journey

Their pitching skills improved massively over the LaunchBox programme and their advice to any new start-ups would be to “work on your public speaking skills because being able to convince people that your idea is good is just as important as your idea actually being good.”.

Good Gaming Leagues also praised the mentorship they received, “we got to speak to investors and start-ups that went on to raise money, and got some great advice as to how we can make ourselves as a company as attractive as possible.”

Where are they now?

Currently taking a break from the project.
