Vice President of Business Development, PlayVS
Laz Alberto has worked on a few different sides of the gaming world. First, he managed international partnerships in mobile gaming at an advertising agency. From there he moved to the investing side, servicing a portfolio of over 100 early-stage companies at Lowercase Capital, many of which were in esports and media. He then joined Science Inc, a startup studio where he helped companies with growth, strategy and fundraising. Now, he is on the founding team of PlayVS, the official league for high school esports. Through an exclusive partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations, PlayVS turns esports into state-sanctioned high school sports, giving kids the opportunity to earn a varsity letter and win a state championship. When he isn’t busy winning the office esports league, Alberto also hosts the Startup Gym podcast.
