Esports has become a burgeoning landscape now spreading through higher education. At The University of Akron in Ohio, an initiative to create a multi-tiered esports program began in earnest in 2018, and when the institution worked alongside ByteSpeed to build its computer gaming systems, the choice to implement Samsung solid-state drives (SSDs) was an easy one. In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • How The University of Akron teamed up with ByteSpeed and Samsung to power up the esports program
  • The financial decision-making process from the University
  • Where the future of this technology fits into the growing gaming industry

Our guest speakers are:

  • Michael Fay | Esports Coach at The University of Akron
  • Steve Haman | Territory Sales Manager, ByteSpeed
  • Kyle Beckius | Purchasing Manager, ByteSpeed
  • Rich Leonarz | Director of Product Marketing, Samsung
