Building a Gaming Startup

Join us on July 30th as we chat with Zach Dixon, Co-founder & COO of Players’ Lounge, a platform where gamers can play their favorite video games against others for prizes.

Zach founded the company with his co-founder Austin Woolridge in the fall of 2014, and since then they’ve grown substantially. They have raised over $3 million in funding, from investors including Drake, Marissa Mayer, and Comcast Ventures and are a Y Combinator alum.

We’re excited to chat with Zach about how he’s grown Players’ Lounge from a local, tristate community, to a company with players across the country earning millions of dollars in prizes every month. We’ll discuss challenges and opportunities in the space, their experience applying to YC, and more.
