Knights Partner with Award-Winning Social Investment App Invstr

PITTSBURGH, April 6, 2022 – In time for Financial Literacy Month, the Knights are proud to announce a new partnership with Invstr, the leading social investment and financial education app. Invstr provides users commission-free investing, crypto, and banking services and all the tools needed to build confidence and create a solid financial future. By partnering, fans of the Knights and new Invstr users can earn $30 in Bitcoin when they download the app and fund a new account. New users will also have access to Invstr’s commission-free investing, crypto and banking services, and all the tools aspiring investors need to build confidence and create a solid financial future. 

The scope of this partnership between the brands will include official partner status, presenting events sponsorship inclusion, event broadcast integration, and fan and community engagement opportunities. Specifically, Invstr will be a Knights team jersey sponsor, the presenting sponsor of the Knight’s Women’s Rocket League team, an official sponsor of the Knights MBK City of Champions digital and financial literacy community program as well as sponsors of our Knights Arena Valorant tournaments – the Knights Gauntlet.

I’m excited to welcome Invstr as our new champion partner,” Knights Director of Business Development Matt Roche said. “As a valued partner, they will be supporting our teams, our events, our community initiatives, and exclusive content to provide new areas for Knights fans to engage with our talent and our brand. Together, we will also be building new ways for hardcore gamers to take Knights Arena tournament winnings and reinvest that through stocks or crypto.

We’re thrilled to have Invstr backing our team. It means so much, not only to us but for women in esports in general to have the support of a major sponsor. I’m happy that the team at Invstr is helping to lead the charge towards more equality in professional esports.” said Knights Rocket League player Shelby “pincesscheeks” Rader.

Esports and investing have been two incredibly high-growth activities among young people in recent years,” said Kerim Derhalli, founder and CEO of Invstr. “By partnering with the Knights – proud organizers of MBK City of Champions digital and financial literacy community program and one of the premier esports organizations – we’re enabling more young people to learn and become smart investors and take charge of their financial futures. Game on!”

Individuals who download Invstr can create investment leagues and compete with friends in a fun, risk-free way through the app’s “Fantasy Finance®” tool, learn about financial markets and invest in stocks and cryptocurrency. The partnership comes amid a period of exciting growth for Invstr. The app has been downloaded by over a million people, 16,000 private Fantasy Finance leagues have been created by Invstr members and over one and a half million people have also played the app’s Global Invstr StockStars Mini on Snapchat.

Invstr empowers people to take charge of their financial future and invest smarter. By providing them with the education, resources, and opportunity to become confident investors, we can change the conversation around investing. Using fun, learning, and competition, our game, Fantasy Finance™, gives players the chance to manage an investment portfolio in a risk-free way; users can invest $1M of virtual cash, access news and data, and win real prizes – and all without losing the shirt off their back. When they’re ready, users can “graduate” to real and affordable investing directly within the app with Invstr+, our brokerage and banking platform. Users can invest in crypto, US stocks, ETFs & fractional shares at $0 commission and get checking, savings & a debit card with no minimums or monthly fees.
