Vision Venture Partners wants to change the game

But behind the scenes, the Vision Venture Partners Team, the private equity firm behind Echo Fox, is quietly reshaping esports. Jace Hall, Stratton Sclavos and Amit Raizada are all aiming to leverage their experiences in mobile technology, verification, the sports industry and the gaming industry to take their shot at the next billion-dollar industry.
