About the Triangle Esports Championship

TEC (Triangle Esports Championship) is a grassroots esports expo based out of the Triangle area in North Carolina.  TEC is dedicated to creating a safe esports ecosystem while doing our part to help the community.  We do this by working with local gamers and tournament organizers to help create enjoyable tournaments open to all gamers and esports enthusiasts.  We may have a passion for video games but understanding the culture within esports is important to us.

Purpose & Benefit

TEC (Triangle Esports Championship) is more than a set of tournaments and an expo. TEC also directly benefits local communities as all proceeds from the events help fund digital inclusion and literacy efforts in North Carolina offered by local non-profits Kramden Institute and the Triangle Literacy Council. While the Triangle area in North Carolina is known worldwide as a technology hub, tens of thousands of students and their families here still struggle to use and access technology to enhance their education and future aspirations. By partnering together, TLC and Kramden have helped thousands across the area become digitally literate, employable, and equipped with the technology tools and training they need to succeed in school and at work, to find economic opportunity, and to help their communities flourish. Together these two 501(c)(3) non-profits will use the proceeds from TEC to:

  • Provide basic digital literacy training to communities in need
  • Provide basic literacy, life skills and workforce development services
  • Provide refurbished computers and computing technology
  • Offer STEM education programs to underserved students
