A sustainable development of talents and support of elite players never stops at in-game performance. Enabling a dual career, finding schools and universities that run performance sports programs, helping to lead a well-organized life outside esports is ultimately boosting the in-game performance as well.
There‘s more to a successful career than just in game performance: being a role model for ambitious gamers and helping to bring esports to broader audiences should be seen more as a chance than a liability. The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung helps the esports player foundation to support the players with media and interview training, social media workshops and value education.
Many parents of esports pros and talents do not have any access to the world of gaming and esports. But the more they know and understand, the better they can support their children in their careers – and can help other parents with their knowledge and insights. The Konrad Adenauer foundation also supports the parents counseling of the esports player foundation.

Tax consulting and declarations
To win prize money or be signed by a professional organisation often means the first steps into professional life – and everything that comes with it. If someone has never declared an income tax before, professional help is more than welcome. But also established players who generate additional income as streamers, win prize money in different countries or live and work in different cities are often presented with problems, as esports player is a fairly new profession. We are extremely proud to have a world reknown partner like PwC as an enabling Partner to take responsibility for our players.
