Together To The Top With Athene And Razer

TOGETHER TO THE TOP WITH ATHENE AND RAZER

Carlsbad, Calif. – January 19th, 2012 – Razer, the world leader in high performance gaming hardware, and Athene, professional gamer and world-famous YouTube personality, are joining forces to promote “Together to the Top,” a movement started by Athene to facilitate rapid growth within the YouTube community.

Made famous for his multiple broken records in gaming, Athene has gained quite an audience with over 300 Million total upload views and 630,000 subscribers. Inspired by the ongoing support from his loyal fan base, Athene started Together to the Top as a method of promoting aspiring YouTube content creators around the world and to promote the idea of a free internet. This effort has encouraged the YouTube community to support each other and work together to dramatically increase the reach of their video content.

“As much as I'm a gamer, I'm also an activist and I've always put community first. Razer's stance on SOPA and uncompromised support of the gaming community is a perfect example as for why I value this partnership so much. I am really looking forward to this collaboration.”

Community is an integral focus for Razer. With over 1 million facebook fans and ongoing activity on Twitter and YouTube, supporting Together to the Top makes perfect sense.

“We’re very excited to support such an incredible effort,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “We’ve already seen significant growth on YouTube within the gaming community since Athene first started Together to the Top. It’s in times like these that we really need to invest and strengthen the community to ensure that they not only have a voice, but to keep them from being silenced.”
