Time is in favour of the sports tech companies in Europe right now as there are numerous companies across the continent that work with the intention to bring about a change in the sector. Almost all bustling tech startup hubs in Europe have a slew of sports tech startups like the other categories and France is no exception. Of the many French sports tech startups, team management platform Esports Management is a notable mention.
Founded in 2017 by Alexandre Amoukteh, Guillaume Golfieri, and Mike M. Hessabi in Nice, Esports Management wants to create a place for everyone to forge their own path, improve their skills, and connect amateur players with the experts. Alexandre Amoukteh, co-founder at the company wants to achieve the same with its new name, new product, and funding.
Nicecactus is the name!
The team management gaming platform has been rebranded from Esports Management to Nicecactus.gg. Its new name reflects the love for the French city Nice, which is a sharp, beautiful, and bright location in the country.

The rebranded gaming platform Nicecactus.gg has secured $5.5 million (nearly €5 million) from a group of private investors. With the investment, the French startup will build a platform to enable semi-pro and amateur esports athletes to improve their skills and win sponsors. Furthermore, Nicecactus.gg is creating a grassroots esports sponsorship fund with $1.1 million.
