Gaming is no longer a game for young Rochester entrepreneur

T Antonio of Rochester, NH needed a little something to up his game on the video games he loves to play, so he invented it. It worked out so well that his next invention was his own company, set up to sell his device to the rest of the gaming world. And that world is huge.

T explains that he has always played a lot of “shooter” games online, competing in tournaments that make it “very much like a sport.” And these days, that sport has turned into a billion-dollar industry with competitors winning prizes that can top $1 million.

All employers are required to provide a safe and healthy workplace and are subject to no-notice safety and health inspections. The U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) conducts these inspections.


Insurance for your business

Every business should have a general business insurance policy including general liability and other standard coverage, such as coverage for your place of business. If the business has one or more employees, worker’s compensation insurance is also required. Businesses in certain industries require additional types of insurance. Contact your insurance agent or the NH Insurance Department
