Popular esports organization Astralis has officially launched their program focused on the development of young talent entitled the Astralis Talent initiative, with plans to create a recruitment platform and training partner.
“We have invested significantly in creating the optimal conditions for professional esports players and we aim to constantly progress as an organization, as teams and as individuals” Anders Hørsholt, CEO of Astralis said in an official statement. “By introducing ‘Astralis Talent’, we invite local talent to be a part of our set-up and culture with the ambition to integrate young players into a healthy, competitive environment, introducing them to the life of a true professional.”
“Ever since we started, we have had discussions around how to implement talent development into our overall strategy without compromising in other areas” Kasper Hvidt, Director of Sports added. “We finally feel we have the resources and facilities and we have gained a lot of experience, which we obviously did not have when starting out.”
