MasterSitak on Twitch/Mixer/YouTube & Founder of Sitak Industries and Twitch Ottawa
My name is Jason, MasterSitak on Twitch/Mixer/YouTube, and I am the Founder of Sitak Industries and Twitch Ottawa.
My journey in the gaming industry started five years ago as a broadcaster. I started attending major eSports events in my city and surrounding areas. This got me interested in working the esports scene- I just wanted to help run the events as smoothly as possible. It all started when I volunteered at local Counter-Strike and Dota events the year before DreamHack came to Canada. The team from LAN ETS won the contract to run the event and allowed me to volunteer. The next year they gave me more responsibilities and added me to the management team. They covered my accommodations and paid me this time! This created a snowball effect as I was offered opportunities with other esport event organizers in Canada and the US. From these events I met gaming industry companies, game devs and vendors, who asked if I was able to help them in the Canadian/US market due to the extensive network that I have created. I started winning contracts with HyperX, Logitech G, Huion Tablet, and many more!
After gaining this experience, I placed a bid and won a contract with WeHype Global!! This company is an online marketing platform for influencers based in Sweden designed to instantly connect streamers and industry companies for paid promotional campaigns. This leads us to the present, I am excited to say that I have left my position in the defence industry to be able to allocate all my time and effort to working in the gaming industry!
