Rushindra Sinha explains the struggles of Global Esports
Rushindra Sinha, founder and CEO of Global Esports, shared the organization’s journey and how it nearly went bankrupt multiple times along the way in a recent live stream.

Furthermore, he addressed previous rumours of the institution closing down and running out of funds, claiming that they were true. He also stated that it had occurred several times in the previous five years.

Following that, he mentioned the whiteboard in his office that displays the number of days Global Esports could survive on its current bank balance. He claimed that the figure has dropped to a single digit several times in the last five years.
Pointing at the whiteboard beside his desk, he says, “On this exact whiteboard, from the early days of Global Esports, we have been writing a number. The number signified how many days of balance are left in GE’s account. Most of the time the number would be in double digits, meaning 15 days, 20 days, or 50 days left for GE to shut down, technically,” said Sinha. “There have been enough times that the number went to a single digit. At least 5 to 10 times in the last 5 years we have gone to single-digit balance, and our bank had a single-digit balance. We have even seen a negative balance in our account. And yet here we are. Still standing strong, still going strong.”
