For Press Release:
You’re never too young to start something new.
Entrepreneurship has no age limits. Gregory Trent, the 13-year-old co-founder of Esports Arcade converted his vision into reality: provide a safe space where kids can socialize through playing esports games while their parents can enjoy classic arcade games and pinball. I grew up in the Atari generation…naturally I had to pick up a few quarters and find out more. Young Gregory said “I worked hard this summer setting up the arcade and learning all the hard involved in starting business.”
Growing up (err, 30+ years go…) I could never drag my parents into an arcade because they weren’t interested in the games I liked. But Gregory’s idea to combine classics with today’s games under one roof, at the mall no less, is brilliant. Step inside Esports Arcade and you’ll find old school games like skeeball, Pong, and Pac-Man. Plus, the new school is well represented: Mario Kart, Fortnite, and Apex Legends to name a few.
I had to admit, Gregory’s business plan impressed me. How so? Gregory’s Esports Arcade has practical qualities beyond the entertainment itself. First, I can race cars in a bucket seat instead of moping in the mall’s walkways while slumping on the husband bench. Second, the wall-sized screens really help me when playing, say, Galaga; I’m fairly blind with and without glasses. And third, by combining generations of games in one space, I am open to the idea of playing newer games with my kids, which allows me to bond with my children in a fun way…perhaps Minecraft isn’t as complicated after all.
And that’s the goal, isn’t it? Because Gregory knows, you’re never too young to start something new.
