JUMP Esport is founded by Jens Martinus Pedersen.
For several years Jens was working as an consultant for some of the largest Danish companies such as Arla, Novo Nordisk, Jyske Bank, STG and Nokia Denmark.
From sport to esport
After ten years as independent consultant Jens was appointed as CEO in a mid-sized football club called Boldklubben Marienlyst (BM) with an aggregated annual revenue around 3 million dollars. During his stay at BM Jens took initiative to start up one of the first esport organisations within the traditional sports system.
Early 2017 Jens decided to allocate his full attention to esport and took up the mission to create a stable and structured platform for esports in broad terms. He founded Odense Esport and JUMP Esport.
Jens holds a master degree in economics and is associated with University of Southern Denmark, where he gives lectures in ‘Marketing’ and ‘International Business’.
