To accelerate the growth of the Asian esports ecosystem, Singapore-based venture capital fund KK Fund has announced the launch of the first eSports X Business Asia Summit (EXB Asia Summit). KK Fund is holding EXB Asia Summit, which is open for public participation with no registration fee, on April 21-22, in partnership with leading Thai esports startup Infofed and global media agency dentsu X.

The summit is therefore a concerted effort to kickstart better collaboration, communication and education to further develop the ecosystem,” said KK Fund Founder and General Partner Koichi Saito in a press statement.(more…)
