John Fazio

Founder / CEO Nerd Street Gamers

John Fazio is the Founder and CEO of Nerd Street Gamers. John’s idea behind founding the company was born from his first time witnessing an amateur video game tournament in-person at a local video game cafe in Pennsylvania. The experience exposed the lack of opportunities that existed for competitive gamers during that time, and the potential the esports industry could reach in the future by replicating traditional sports pipelines. The Philadelphia-native created Nerd Street Gamers to provide accessible esports to everyone through its national network of esports training centers (Localhost), tournaments, event support, and content.

Nerd Street Gamers powers competitive opportunities for all gamers through its national network of esports training centers (Localhost), tournaments, event support, and content. On a mission to lower the barrier of entry to participate in esports, Nerd Street Gamers is building the competitive gaming infrastructure while keeping access, integrity, and opportunity as its core tenets. 

"Venues are an important part of the ecosystem that drive competitive integrity and connect more gamers to esports. I'm excited to talk more about our mission to increase access and opportunity at the Esports Venue Summit in London, England.” - John Fazio
