- Lack of Official Esports Programs: We collaborate to establish official esports programs.
- Skills Gap for the Future Workforce: ESS programs bridge the gap for the modern workforce.
- Negative Stereotypes Surrounding Gaming: We highlight the educational aspects of gaming.

- Bridging the Gap Between Education and Esports: We connect education and the esports industry.
Course Writing: Develop pre-packaged Esports Education courses for institutions.
Course Validation: Offer independent validation of standards.
