Infectiously passionate about the worlds of video games and geek culture, Keisha Howard is a leader who has created a compelling and engaging vision and inspires others around it. A two time TEDx Speaker, Keisha is able foresee what lies beyond the horizon for the video game and esports industries. She regards video games as more than just entertainment, but a system of ideas and processes that can move and inspire people to action.
Keisha started Sugar Gamers over 10 years ago while pursuing a career in high-rise real estate development. She started this media-tech company without outside resources or funds, yet is able to create unorthodox solutions to the seemingly countless problems that exist while bootstrapping an entrepreneurial endeavor. She’s created a unique community, united not only by common interests in gaming and geek culture but by the mission of promoting diversity and inclusiveness in a space that often suffers from the lack of it.
Her journey has afforded her the opportunity to work with brands like SYFY, Watchmojo, AT&T, HBO, Nintendo, HTC, Microsoft, Google, and more.
