Jérôme Coupez, Founder & CEO - Prodigy Agency
“We all know the untapped potential of the Turkish region. Two Turkish players were at the top of LEC and LCS this year. Talking with Prodigy and Jerome showed me that there is so much more that we can do for the players to help them realize their true potential. #PlayersFirst mentality was always in me without me realizing.
Working in TCL, I've always tried to make the lives of the pro players I worked with easier. The life of a pro player is a very difficult one. They need the best support to focus on their respective crafts. That's where I and Prodigy come in. Together; we will help the Turkish players improve, thrive and turn them into the best version of themselves.”
