Our discussion included:

Government • How the growth and maturity of the esports industry has let to more and more interaction with the government; and why that is a good thing. • Why can’t esports be treated like traditional sports, with the same resources? • The higher importance of government in smaller countries.

NGO funding sources – always follow the money.

The International Esports Federation (IESF) • What it the mission of the IESF? • How does it fit into the esports ecosystem?

Hosting events in Israel. Where does politics fit in? • Having more events will bring a greater awareness of players as individuals, and not as someone only wrapped in a flag. • Gaming truly is its own language

What is Winzard? And how does it work to create multiple streams of income?

Mobile • Is mobile the future of esports in Israel and MENA?

Olympics • Should the Olympics include esports in their program?
