We’ll also discuss what it was like to attend two startup accelerators, the value we got from them, and how we approached raising our seed round of funding afterwards.</p> <p><br></p> <p> <strong>Contact Info</strong></p> <p>Matt Gunnin (CEO)</p> <ul> <li>Email: matt@esportsone.com</li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/matthewgunnin"><strong>Twitter</strong></a></li> <li><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/matthewgunnin/"><strong>LinkedIn</strong></a></li> </ul> <p>Jordan O'Hara (Marketing Director)</p> <ul> <li>Email: jordan@esportsone.com</li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/OHaraBiz"><strong>Twitter</strong></a></li> <li><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/esports-jordan-ohara/"><strong>LinkedIn</strong></a></li> </ul> <p>Jonny Hockey (Head of Biz Dev)</p> <ul> <li>Email: jonny@esportsone.com</li> <li><a href="https://twitter.com/JonnyHockey3"><strong>Twitter</strong></a></li> <li><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonathan-hockey/"><strong>LinkedIn</strong></a></li> </ul>
