About Mana Partners 

Mana is a company that creates value at the intersection point of brands and gaming.

We seek to accelerate and amplify this intersection through industry-leading consultative services for brands and through business development for rights owners. We aim to bring about a revolution in marketing, with a player-experience first mindset, and believe that Asia represents the evolutionary epicentre of participative entertainment.

In many ways, our consulting business resembles a sports marketing agency. We have expertise in discovering, defining, designing, and delivering programmes that unlock the potential of IP, rights, and player passion in order to create better value for brands and for better experiences for consumers.

In other ways, we need to create the future we wish to see come about.

From working with globally-renowned brands on their strategies, pioneering the use of game environments and avatars for virtual concerts, designing esports programmes for schools, Mana will continue to create new products, new businesses, and new opportunities for brands to connect with players - and, in doing so, catalyse the growth of gaming, esports, related technologies, and properties.


Mana has meaning in both of the worlds in which we operate:

In-game, Mana denotes the propensity for magic; the ability to change the dynamics of the game. This represents our belief in the impact which partnerships can make.

IRL, Mana represents a spiritual source of power, stemming from passion and conviction; channelled purpose.

Values & beliefs

We believe diversity creates advantage

The first guard against isomorphism; people with divergent backgrounds and experiences, converging around a challenge, makes for game-changing solutions.

We believe inclusion creates value

players, publishers, teams and brands; each have their own meta and each needs representation, in order to unlock true potential.

We play to grow and grow through play

Every project, every output, every experience is an opportunity to learn and to level-up. Every level we reach brings us closer to players, and therefore to our clients, through their customers.

We democratise our ideas and bring others on the journey

We work in partnerships, so we share in both the joy of creativity and the burden of delivery.

We work courageously and feedback selflessly

Bringing new ideas and opportunities to the table is the right and expectation of all, to which we reciprocate with respect. We believe in a social contract to each other; to respectfully and constructively challenge ideas when we disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting.
