Making it in Esports: All Knights Owner, Felipe Rossi Heller On Owning an Esports Team
This article is part of Gamer One’s new Making it in Esports series which interviews top industry team owners to learn more about their journey and to share the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
The following is a recent interview we had with Felipe Rossi Heller, owner of All Knights.
1. What was your journey like that eventually led to owning your own team?
FR: Basically since I was a kid I love to play video games and watch it. I always had a dream to make a professional team that would be the influence on other teams. In LATAM I feel we could do more than we are, I aspire to make LATAM reach out NA/EU level
2. What’s an average workday look like for you?
FR: First of all, I have a meeting during the morning with the GM to check how things are going, if the team needs something or if we can improve anything. Then things start happen during all the day, since a meeting up until new ideas from a brainstorm
3. What’s the most challenging part about owning your own team?
FR: I think the most challenging part is about how I have been living in Chile about business and the team is in Mexico and I’m not there to participate as I would like. Of course, I have the opportunity to travel to Mexico in times but it isn’t the same to live there.
4. What advice would you have for aspiring professional gamers?
FR: I would recommend that if you want to be a gamer you must understand that it is a job and you need to exercise, have good habits about food and life. If you want to be a good pro gamer you should be a good professional too, your attitude is really important. You should be open to hearing advice.
5. What excites you most about the future of the esports industry?
FR: The thing that most excites me about the esports in the future is that the numbers will never stop to grow and things will get more professional than they have been now, each day things get better and we learn something. Esports is the future, Esports is a job.
