DingIt is a video games and eSports video-hosting website headquartered in London, England.

History[edit]

Founded in 2014[2] by Mark Hain, DingIt put on a variety of original live e-Sports events[3] and launched at the end of February 2015 with 7,000 viewers and grew to over 170,000 viewers by the end of April 2015.[4] The company has received two rounds of funding to date, the first consisting of $1.5M follow-on seed funding[5] and the most recent round taking place in July 2015.[6]

In 2016, DingIt changed their content to focus on short-form highlights, instead of long format tournament videos.[7]

At the start of 2017, DingIt’s parent company renamed to Level Up Media[8] in order to grow a portfolio of owned and operated sites and syndication partner network within gaming. DingIt continues as the flagship site in the Level Up Media network.
