Here we are! The ASCEND 2021 event organized by Marcus Howard and his team will begin this Friday February 5th at 9am! The 2021 ASCEND HBCU Esports Conference and Expo will feature speakers representing a myriad of for-profit and non-profit companies within the esports and gaming ecosystem, including Riot Games and Intel. This event will provide the opportunity to learn about the esports and gaming industries while interacting with industry leaders. Another goal of the ASCEND HBCU Esports Conference and Career Expo is to increase support for STEAM education in low-income communities and improve the financial inclusion of under-represented innovators.
CodeBoxx is proud to support this major event which will attract hundreds of people from all walks of life around the same and unique theme, namely esports and gaming. For the occasion, CodeBoxx is offering 2 free seats in one of its cohorts that will be awarded among the participants of the event.
