“I have been following NODWIN Gaming since its early stages and I know they are the ones responsible for getting esports to India and that too, to mainstream at a time, when esports was a distant concept. The company has been through a tremendous transformational journey since its inception, and I am very delighted to be a part of this team. In the past two years where everyone is focusing on digital, NODWIN has been on a mission to bring esports to masses and taking the game to the next level. I can’t be more excited than ever to take on this challenge and opportunity and similar such challenges in the years to come,” said Vishal Parekh.
