Danny Martin started making his mark on the esports industry during his time as a University of
Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) student athlete studying small business management and
entrepreneurship. His first gig in gaming involved repairing gaming equipment for his
classmates with the knowledge and skill he’d gained in the infancy of esports. After leaving
UTSA, Danny’s career and interest in esports continued to grow. By 2015, he co-founded and
self-funded his own esports organization by turning his 2,000-square-foot Downtown Dallas loft
into a gaming esports arena. Today, Danny is the Co-Founder and CEO of Esposure, a global
esports technology company with a proprietary Education to Entertainment (E2E) ecosystem
focused on developing the next generation of esports professionals and competitive gamers.
Together with Esposure, Danny is on a mission to engage and empower 20,000 students and
young adults with STEM esports education and career exploration by 2025.
