Move over, Bautista. The city’s fastest grow­ing “sport” is com­pet­i­tive video gam­ing—Deloitte pre­dicts e-sports will bring in a half-bil­lion dol­lars world­wide this year, up 25 per cent from 2015. Revlo co-founder James Sun wants in: his plat­form is an add-on to Twitch, the reign­ing ruler of video game stream­ing, that lets gamers mea­sure and re­ward their fans. The prod­uct it­self is all fun and games, but its po­ten­tial is se­ri­ous busi­ness: Ex­treme Ven­ture Part­ners and Y Com­bi­na­tor are just a cou­ple of Revlo’s in­vestors, and more than 15,000 broad­cast­ers use the ser­vice each month.
