Join the Wharton Club of DFW and Adam Rymer, WG'02, CEO of the #2 Ranked Esports Organization in the World, for a Fascinating Overview of the Business

Did you know that the Esports industry generates more than 10 times the revenue of the film and music industries combined?? This is HUGE! We are tremendously fortunate that Wharton MBA, Adam Rymer, moved his e-gaming business from Los Angeles to Dallas just over a year ago. He has graciously agreed to host the WCDFW at his offices and provide a tour of the facilities followed by an insider's education into the mind-blowing, rapidly expanding business of esports.

Come join CEO, Adam Rymer, at OpTic Gaming to learn everything you want to know about esports but are too afraid to ask. This Dallas-based esports organization is one of the largest and most-winning esports groups in the world celebrated by Forbes and Nerd Street.

Get a sneak peak behind the curtain at what it takes to run an esports organization that competes, streams, and produces content across multiple titles including Call of Duty, Overwatch, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros, Valorant, and Magic the Gathering.

We have the capacity to host 40 people onsite at the OpTic Gaming headquarters located at American Airlines Center Plaza.

Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to learn about one of the world's biggest markets from one of the industry's most successful leaders.

History of OpTic Gaming

Founded in 2007, Envy Gaming was a global enterprise known as one of the winningest organizations in the world of esports. Most notably, Envy was named the 8th most valuable esports organization in the world by Forbes in 2019. In 2021, Envy Gaming merged with the esports juggernaut, OpTic Gaming, and together they competed, streamed, and produced content across multiple titles including Call of Duty, Overwatch, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros, Valorant, and Magic the Gathering. In June 2022, Envy Gaming retired their brand to fully become OpTic Gaming as it is known today.

Most recently, OpTic Gaming was ranked #2 in Nerd Street’s Top 10 Esports Orgs in the World in August 2022. Nerd Street’s rankings seek to objectively quantify the measure of an esports org’s success in 10 games by awarding points based on their finishes in various international and domestic competitions.
