The Clutch Digital to debut at ESI Digital Summit on May 26th

A staple of Esports Insider‘s esports business conferences, The Clutch, will return once again – this time at the upcoming ESI Digital Summit (26-27th May, #ESIDIGITAL).

Taking place on May 26th, The Clutch Digital will welcome esteemed investors to judge four esports startups during the online event.

The Clutch Digital Announcement

Each startup will have an opportunity to pitch, taking to the virtual stage for five minutes before they’re cut off. From there, the panel will quiz and question the company representative before moving on to the next!

The first edition of The Clutch took place at ESI London in 2019, with over 30 companies being whittled down to just nine before the contestants pitched their companies live before a panel of top-tier investors. G-Science left Twickenham Stadium as the winner of the inaugural competition, but who will emerge victorious on May 26th?
