VALKYRAE AND COURAGE BECOME CO-OWNERS OF 100 THIEVES
100 Thieves, a leading esports organization, has added two members to its ownership group. Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter and Jack “CouRage” Dunlop join Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Drake, Scooter Braun and Dan Gilbert.
Hofstetter and Dunlop are best known for their work as part of 100 Thieves content creator team. In their new ownership roles, they will be more involved in broader business strategy, helping to identify and bring on new talent, building new programs and other initiatives. However, fans can still expect to see content from both creators.
“As a streamer and former pro-player myself, I always wanted 100 Thieves to be an organization guided by and built to be a platform for content creators,” said Haag, 100 Thieves founder and CEO. “Rae and Jack have been with us since 2018 and 2019, respectively, and are significant contributors to 100 Thieves. They deserve recognition for what they’ve done for the company to date – and we want their strategic input on what we can all do together in the future.”
Hofstetter is coming off a year of major growth, and is widely recognized as the most popular female streamer in the gaming space with 3.1 million followers on Instagram, 2.1 million followers on Twitter and 3 million subscribers on YouTube. She won Content Creator of the Year at the 2020 Game Awards.
“I’m so excited to be a co-owner of 100 Thieves and to help write the next chapter for our organization,” said Hofstetter. “I was the first female content creator to join 100 Thieves, and I’m proud that I have been a key part of the brand since very early on. It feels natural to continue to work with Matt and Jack in this new capacity to have even more of an impact. We’re looking forward to growing our team and welcoming new creators that we know our fans will love.”
Dunlop is also a popular streamer in his own right, boasting 1.7 million followers on Instagram, 1.6 million followers on Twitter and 3.27 million subscribers on YouTube.
“Becoming a co-owner of 100 Thieves seemed like the natural progression in my entrepreneurial journey, and I am so proud to take this step forward,” said Dunlop. “100 Thieves has opened many doors for my career and supported my evolution as a creator. We’ve been able to do amazing things together, like create the CouRage and Nadeshot Show and a wide range of incredible videos at the 100 Thieves Content house alongside some of my best friends. I’m excited about continuing to grow 100 Thieves and pave the way for future creators to join the fold.”
Hofstetter and Dunlop both have an exclusive streaming deal with YouTube.
