Prodigy Agency, perhaps the leading Esports talent agency around today, has announced that some $1.21 million has been raised from Trust Esport, the Esports VC fund. Having been founded by Jerome Coupez, Prodigy Agency now represents over 80 players, including major names such as Dan “apex” Madesclaire, Matheiu “ZywOo” Herbaut, Adil “ScreaM” Benrlitom, Oscar “Mixwell” Canellas Colocho and Paul “sOAZ” Boyer.

What Such Funds Will be Used For

Players on the books of Prodigy Agency represent teams including Team Liquid, G2 Esports, Astralis, 100 Thieves and Ninjas in Pyjamas, demonstrating just how important they are in the industry. Their latest addition of funds will be used to support the growth of the agency, including aiding the wellness of players, which will be achieved through the creation of a new IT and human environment.

Elsewhere, the agency will also be investing in marketing and image development for its players, along with Esports communities and future global icons of the entertainment industry. Another goal for Prodigy is to add to its team, which will in turn enable them to offer the best support and services to players. New members of staff will include international agents, as well as experts in marketing, sponsorship and sales.

What the Prodigy Agency Has Said on the Matter

The Prodigy Agency is also looking to continue its expansion, focusing upon the United States, China and South Korea in particular. Speaking on the announcement of such funding, Coupez had the following to say:

“Our main mission with Prodigy Agency is to take care and support our players from all angles, giving them the best protection and services we can. In that regard, we are happy to welcome Trust Esport and Matthieu Dallon, a pioneer in Esports, to the Prodigy Family with whom we share a common vision of the development stakes of this ecosystem and the players, and a real passion for Esports. Trust Esport is the perfect partner to keep paving the way of the players’ representation and expand our mission and operations. I’m really looking forward to continuing developing and building the best support for our players around the world.”

Meanwhile, having played a major role in the latest development, Matthieu Dallon, Founder of Trust Esport stated that: “We saw in Jérôme Coupez, Manon Lagarrigue and the entire Prodigy team an extraordinary entrepreneurial energy and benevolence, which has created a unique bond of trust with the prodigies they represent; this strength, combined with an international project and an objective of sector leadership convinced us to invest in their company and to support their vision.”
