OUR STORY

DOJO Madness harnesses the power of big data to build tools and services that help players and fans to understand and master their favorite esports games.

DOJO’s first line of products, the SUMO apps, are virtual coaching apps for League of Legends, Overwatch, and Dota 2.

DOJO Madness also offers a B2B data service that provides high-quality solutions for live in-game betting in esports.
