From Basement Gamer to Multi-Millionaire – a Mother’s Perspective – Helen Georgallidis

February 6, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

George Georgallidis (HotshotGG), a 2018 Forbes 30 under 30 delegate, started gaming in his London basement as a teenager, shocking his mother, when she realized that thousands of viewers from around the world were watching her son play computer games. At that point she knew gaming was his passion and she worked with him in achieving his dream. In 2010, George dropped out of college to pursue a career as a League of Legends pro gamer, starting what has become one of the oldest and most successful organizations in e-sports: Counter Logic Gaming. Counter Logic has top-tier esports teams, millions of dedicated fans across multiple social media and online platforms bringing in seven-figure annual revenues. In 2017, Madison Square Garden Company acquired controlling interest in Counter Logic Gaming. Helen, currently a retired TVDSB teacher, immersed herself in the education of esports, officially becoming CEO of George’s company for a period of time, helping her son to achieve success and bringing hope to parents of basement gamers across the region.
