Kanga Esports announce partnership with WithYouWithMe

Kicking off the new year with a bang, Kanga Esports have today announced a 1 year strategic partnership with Australian based social impact company, WithYouWithMe (WYWM).

This partnership will see WYWM assist Kanga Esports in maximizing the potential of their LCO players and coaching staff. WYWM has been helping hundreds of people learn tech skills for free and disrupting traditional hiring by focusing on people’s potential instead of their experience.

Hayden Shiels, CEO of Kanga Esports, spoke about the nature of the partnership and his excitement for teaming up with a company like WYWM.

“We have been very keen to announce this partnership with WYWM for quite some time. Both of us understand how vital it is to unlock someone's full potential through the correct training and structure.”

“As the newest entrants into the LCO we want to ensure our players have the right support system in place to maximize their potential. I’m excited for the year ahead and can’t wait to get to work,” finished Mr. Shiels.

Alex Bacarella, VP of Growth, WithYouWithMe, went on to state why the company has decided to enter the world of esports and what they’re aiming to achieve from this partnership.

“WithYouWithMe is disrupting hiring in every industry by focussing on people's potential instead of their experience. Esports is no exception. We want to show that we can bring ordinary players who are passionate about the game with a lot of potential and through training get them to a globally competitive level,”

“We want to make sure that our players have the best opportunity to unleash their potential and believe that our partnership with Kanga will provide that opportunity,” finished Mr. Barcarella.

More details regarding the partnership will come to light in the near future. In the meantime, be sure to follow the progress of the Kanga x WYWM LCO team via our social media channels.

About WithYouWithMe

WithYouWithMe is a social impact company solving un and underemployment. The traditional way companies hire is broken. WithYouWithMe fixes this by hiring based on potential, not experience and training candidates in the tech skills necessary for the job. The company was founded by Veterans who upon discharging from the military were unable to find meaningful employment. They realised that they weren’t alone in their struggles to find meaningful employment, and that veterans and other key groups had skills which made them perfect for working in tech. WithYouWithMe currently offers free skills mapping, training and job support to veterans, military families, neurodivergent individuals and indigenous peoples.
