TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Millennial Esports Corp. ("Millennial" or the "Company", TSX VENTURE: GAME, OTCQB: MLLLF) is pleased to announce that the Company’s Stream Hatchet business unit, under the ongoing leadership of co-founder Eduard Monserrat, continues to enjoy growth and exceed expectations in providing meaningful and actionable data and analysis of video game streaming services like Amazon’s ‘Twitch’. Known and respected for its unique insights and proprietary data, Stream Hatchet, based in Spain, provides complete Esports data analytics solutions for a wide variety of global clients and partners.
“What makes Stream Hatchet so valuable to our partners and clients is the fact our data offering is, and always will be, constantly evolving,” said Eduard Monserrat. “We are now in a phase where our data solution is becoming unique, and we are leveraging that in establishing partnerships with the most important companies in the video game and Esports industries.”
The global success of streaming services means that Stream Hatchet services clients from around the world including Sandbox Network, a multi-channel network (MCN) company active exclusively in Korea. With Korea’s largest network of gaming creators and streamers, Sandbox specializes in helping gamers maximize their influence on a variety of leading platforms. In searching for a tool that would provide access to data for their Twitch-streaming gamers, Sandbox came across Stream Hatchet.
“Stream Hatchet has been a fantastic resource for us in a number of important ways, besides making it easier for us to market livestreams.” said Sandbox business development manager, Leo Jae Hun Woo. “Not only do they help us find good creators, their trend analysis and detailed channel data provide insights valuable in managing streamers’ content.”
Simultaneously to helping its partners conquer the digital landscape, Stream Hatchet is solidifying its position as an industry thought leader, both through its own blogs and newsletters, as well as newsletters co-created with other innovative, forward-thinking Esports and video game companies. Presently, Stream Hatchet crafts weekly in-house reports, while also providing its industry leading insights and market intelligence to the popular and highly regarded Esports Insider.
“Our team has worked hard to develop a reputation as a global thought leader in analytics, which in turn really helps the sales team lock down new clients,” said Stream Hatchet Head of Global Sales, Jacob Phillips. “Partnerships like the one we have with Esports Insider are extremely beneficial in strengthening and maintaining those relationships and have been instrumental in engaging with major global companies, which we expect to lead to potential revenue generating opportunities for the Company.”
