The Eat 4 Life Podcast-Episode 5

You have an idea but don’t know how to get funding or get your foot in the door of an industry you love; if you’re dealing with one or both of those problems, then this week’s guest has the gems you need to make headway and secure funding. Tim Fields is a veteran in the gaming industry, but his path to success did not come easy. Tim started his journey with his brand Thug-Geek which allowed him to connect with companies and industry leaders by leveraging product reviews and events. His fourteen-year tenure in the gaming industry opened his eyes to significant racial disparities within the industry. It was a catalyst in the creation of the Black eSports Network, aka BESN.TV. As a Start It Up Georgia graduate and member of the Atlanta Tech Village Accelerator and Ernst Young Entrepreneur Program, Tim knows a thing or two about getting businesses off the ground.
