ReKTGlobal just got a couple of new investors today as it was announced this morning that Tainy and Lex Borrero have joined on. The two have come in with a primary focus on the Latin American market, and join Steve Aoki and Imagine Dragons as co-owners of ReKTGlobal, the parent company of global esports team Rogue. Here’s a few quotes from this morning’s announcement.
In announcing the investment, Tainy said, “As a passionate gamer and supporter of Rogue, I’m excited to join ReKTGlobal as an investor. When I’m not in the studio, I’m gaming – playing everything from League of Legends, NBA 2K and Final Fantasy to Gears of War, whose soundtrack I’m currently working on, in addition to my own album.”
Lex Borrero, who recently won ASCAP’s Song of the Year Award as publisher of Zedd’s “The Middle,” adds, “I’ve been watching what ReKTGlobal has been doing in the space since 2017, and I love their vision of merging music and gaming. When the opportunity came up, it was a no brainer.”
“We’re excited to add Tainy, the legendary Latin music producer, as well as his manager and award-winning executive, Lex Borrero, as investors in the ReKTGlobal family,” said Amish Shah, founder of ReKTGlobal and co-owner of Team Rogue. “With Tainy and Lex’s support, we look forward to continuous growth and elevation of Rogue Nation’s global footprint in Latin America and beyond.”
