(Awesome GamersBeard swag from HavenCon)When I was looking at the exhibitors & guest lists for the convention, I saw Gamers Beard would be attending so I decided to check out what it was.
Gamers Beard is a website that helps professional and amateur gamers manage their gaming careers, connect with other gamers, and find an esports team.It was a very satisfying moment creating a profile - You get to set up & share all your gaming skills, social networks, display your gaming experiences & so much more. I immediately was able to find connections near my area & interact with people on my 'social wall'. Background: "Gamers Beard was originally founded in June, 2014 by Erik Wantland, an entrepreneur from Austin, Texas. Erik was later joined in July, 2014 by co-founder Rob Davis, also from San Antonio. Both Erik and Rob have extensive experience in business, web development, and the gaming community." How It Began: "Gamers Beard started off as a simple idea that was discussed with several fellow gamers early in 2014. Erik and Rob wanted to create something that would allow gamers to connect and hone their skills."
