For four years, Konrad Wasiela played in the CFL, playing cornerback for the B.C. Lions, Saskatchewan Roughriders and Montreal Alouettes. From there he worked as an adviser for a localization service, called APlus Translations, translating video games for major game studios, including EA Sports, into more than 40 languages. When he was in Poland he went to the Intel Extreme Masters professional gaming competition and was amazed it was a serious sporting event. He was back where he felt comfortable. The result is ESE Entertainment, a media and technology company focused on providing anything a game studio would need to promote, enhance and sell its games to the world. Since 2019, the company has grown from Wasiela’s core group of friends to 150 employees worldwide.
