MEET AGRAGATI

Business & Esports Pioneer
Consultant & Mentor

After over a decade running my own tech repair company, in 2012 I launched GameSync, aiming to build a new gaming community, address at-risk youth, and serve casual and serious players. As the first purpose-built esports center in our county, we became the dominant force in the local market, serving over 25,000 people.
