Adrian has invested in early-stage businesses and mentored them to successful, big exits. He has floated a company publicly and occupies a number of non-executive positions. Furthermore, Adrian is an excellent cultural fit for Edge, providing insightful information into the psychology of user behaviour as well as being an esports evangelist and backer of this growth industry. Welcome aboard, Adrian.

Adrian said about joining Edge, “The esports world is a bit like the wild west when it comes to contracts and the exchange of value between players, brands and organisers. I believe that Edge has a recipe that can fundamentally improve the landscape for all the parties. We have a top class team and exceptional commitment to the end users who are not best served by the status quo.
