Wanted: Gamers who want to become a professional esports player 

Apply now for the H20 Esports Talent Development Program (start Winter Edition: September 2021)

At the H20 Esports Campus we are building the future of esports. Here the greatest talents in the Netherlands train at the cutting edge. But what does it take to excel? If you could get to the top with talent, it went without saying. But those who make it to the top don’t always have the most talent. He does have self-knowledge, confidence and an enormous drive.

Together with Talent Academy Group (TAG) and a number of partners, we started the first H20 Esports TOP Talent Program in April 2021. This program is intended for the greatest gaming talents in the Netherlands and is a unique opportunity for gamers who have the ambition to become a professional esporter. The next process will start in the autumn. These talents are intensively supervised for 4 months after careful selection. The program provides 4 boot camps (training camps) of 2 days where experts in different areas work with you to make you better. Because you have talent. You have to earn success. It’s all about behavior! Do you think you have all the elements that make you a successful esporter from a regular gamer? Then sign up immediately.

A few experts on the H20 Talent Development Program

We have one purpose for this program: to coach esports players in achieving top performance. Wij hebben één doel met dit programma: esporters begeleiden om topprestaties neer te zetten. TAG is the market leader in the top sports world. Not only soccer players from Ajax, PSV and the Dutch national team make use of the expertise of TAG, but also top hockey players and female handball players. The step to esports makes sense because we are also active in the entertainment world. Various Youtubers, influencers and artists are being coached by us.

CEO en performancecoach TAG

We follow a lot of national and international esports talent. However, I see very few Dutch top players in the international professional esports teams. It is therefore a very good thing that H20 is starting this initiative of a Talent Development Program. Hopefully, partly as a result of this program, more talents from the Netherlands will break through in the future. We are happy to contribute to this.

Damn Good Nutrition

Our mission is to remove the guilty from your pleasure. We offer a healthy alternative to softdrinks.

Our mission is to close the gap between the available knowledge about nutrition and the application of this knowledge in society. Science has offered us more and more knowledge on the effects of diet and exercise, but still more and more people are overweight and obese. We would like to see this gap, between what we (should) know and what we do, get smaller.

To achieve this we aim our first arrows at soft drinks. Key players responsible for the excessive amounts of daily sugars consumed.

For this reason we developed a soft drink with the same fine taste, without the added sugars, but with the nutritional value of a protein shake.

After all, nobody said healthy couldn’t be tasty!

Senaptec

The founders and leaders of Senaptec are passionate about you. They want the best for the 80% of your brain that handles senses. We come from various walks of life: professor, business leader, Navy SEAL, marketing exec, and bio-engineer. Yet, our mutual admiration for the amazing capability of the human sensory system draws us together. We are passionate about seeing people reach their full potential. When they do, it looks magnificent. 

Our Senaptec solution was first conceived as a premiere human performance solution to help athletes develop their skills and gain competitive advantage. With this beginning, we had the opportunity to interact with athletes and trainers from elite teams all over the globe- in virtually every type of athletic endeavor. We work hard to make great tools, but even more, we are inspired by the consistency in which athletes work hard too. Those who experience the benefit of our tools are those who also motivate us to share our solution with the world. 

As Senaptec continues its innovative journey, medical and allied health professionals are telling us how they use our technologies to restore vision, rehabilitate concussion, help reverse short-term memory loss, manage Parkinson’s Disease and even alleviate depression. We had always known that the eyes are the window to the brain. Yet, we are now truly discovering how important our senses can be to our brain health. 

We delight in our ability to interact with so many different people using one great solution. Senaptec is a team of diverse backgrounds and incredible camaraderie. One moment we’re discussing how NASA astronauts can benefit from sensory training and the next we’re chatting with a parent who wants to help their child succeed. From the healthiest of brains to those needing the most help, our mission doesn’t change- we love inventing solutions. Light is a continuous spectrum, just as are the many people we serve. 

If you’re a person who wants to get better, you’re just the type we enjoy and support. We want to join in your journey. The Senaptec team sees your improvement as our personal victory.
