Amish Shah

Founder

Founded in 2016 by Amish Shah, ReKTGlobal, Inc. set its sight on providing the infrastructure knowledge, tools and know-how that today’s esports ecosystems are lacking on a global scale. As Managing Partner of SierraMaya360, named 2015’s Top Tech, Sports Media and Entertainment VC firm, Amish is no stranger to the space. His expertise and involvement in such companies as The Drone Racing League and Gameco through early-stage investments position him well for the progressive esports community. As a result, it is not surprising to find Amish as a frequent guest of CNBC, FOX Business, Sirius Radio, and other traditional and digital outlets giving his insight on topics ranging from the Sports/Esports/Media sectors to the latest in tech news and IPO’s.

David Bialek

Co-Founder, CEO

With over 25 years in the sports marketing & media world, Dave made the jump to esports with his co-founding of ReKTGlobal. Dave has spearheaded the creation of multiple advertising platforms in the place-based, streaming media and sports advertising space. He is credited with building two groundbreaking initiatives in collegiate sports. First, he led a sales team to create the iconic Allstate Field Goal Net program in NCAA Football. Second, he invented a “profile” position on NCAA and NBA basket stanchions, with which State Farm has become synonymous. The stanchion sign is widely considered to be the most impactful signage position in all of sports. For this latest pursuit, Dave became a recipient of the prestigious Sports Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 award. His work in the traditional sports marketplace can be seen far and wide, and he’s bringing the very same creative approach to the esports ecosystem.
