Michael Jordan is most famously known as a six-time NBA champion, but his recent work seems to be involving himself in some lucrative investments. On October 25th, aXiomatic Gaming reported that Jordan, along with David Rubenstein and Declaration capital, are supporting them through a financing round. Jordan seems to be leading the charge for aXiomatic, which owns the second-most valuable team in esports – TeamLiquid.
In a statement from Jordan, he said,
“I’m excited to expand my sports equity portfolio through my investment in aXiomatic. Esports is a fast-growing, international industry and I’m glad to partner with this great group of investors.”
With this new capital from investors, aXiomatic plans to continue to establish themselves in the esports industry. Their main focus right now is on enhancing the TeamLiquid brand as a strong force in gaming and media.
The news of Jordan’s investment comes about a week after singer Drake was reported to have purchased his own steak in 100 Thieves. 100 Thieves is a company that touches on the esports industry, thought it also deals in the lifestyle and apparel industries.
