The Yard.GG launches The crowdfunding campaign on Start Engine

Franklin, Indiana – December 7th, 2022 – The Yard.GG  has announced the launch of its crowdfunding campaign on Start Engine. The Yard provides existing communities with the tools and platforms to create manageable, virtual community playgrounds in the metaverse. Prior to its offering, the Company had acquired Harena Data Inc and its assets which include SaaS-based applications that enable virtual play by providing platforms and other services for the billions of video game enthusiasts who want to engage in play across the metaverse. With the Harena transaction The Yard.GG has also assumed ownership of the streaming service, GoPixls and the assets of UMG.

The Yard was founded by media, video game, and telecommunications industry veterans. We believe that the metaverse needs small manageable yards in order to facilitate play. The Yard is a virtual defined space where users can meet up with their friends, play any game they want to play, learn and advance, or just have fun and hang out 

“We have gathered and continue to build the tools that simplify and encourage the use of virtual play communities by existing physical communities” says Derek Pew, CEO of The Yard.GG “For the first time players are going to be provided a Swiss Army Knife of tools for play and engagement, allowing them to define themselves and their communities.”

Harena, a subsidiary of The Yard.GG has established relationships with municipalities, industries, universities, university conferences, youth athletic organizations, middle and secondary schools. The Yard.GG, through Harena, also in the majority owner of The Esports Combine, a yearly event which promotes esports play and to date has been responsible for introducing secondary students to over 550 scholarships at post-secondary institutions throughout the USA.

“At the Yard, we are constantly seeking to liberate experience and facilitate self-definition,” said Derek Pew CEO. “With this Start Engine campaign, we will be able to provide users with more tools and services and build towards our vision of creating a single log-in experience that manages all digital assets, credentials, user data and digital play.  Our goal is to be the catalyst that allows existing communities to use the metaverse to advance themselves socially, technologically, educationally and economically. In some ways our story is one of digital liberation.”
