A Special Message For Our 1000th Blog

We have a special message for our community straight from the top: CEO Ehtisham Rabbani, with contributions by Chief Marketing Officer Kathryn Martinez.

This, our 1000th blog post, is dedicated to all the gamers who have supported us, encouraged us, cheered with us when we triumphed, and stood by us when we did not. None of this would have been possible without you. What a remarkable journey it has been since our inception in 2001.

A Legacy of Excellence SteelSeries was founded in a basement in Copenhagen. Our journey began with a simple yet powerful idea: to provide esports professionals with gear that would not just meet their needs but help them achieve victory. Today, esports professionals have won more prize money with SteelSeries products than any other brand. While we are proud of that, it’s about more than winning — it’s about making a difference.

Our passion for games, allowing them to envelope us, make us better, transport us to far away places is our drive. And it’s the best gig in the world!

Pioneering the Path Throughout our history, SteelSeries has set out to make a difference for gamers and the gaming community. We have consistently pushed ourselves to solve problems that gamers were facing that no one else had addressed. I am so proud of the Steelheads who spent long days and sleepless nights pushing the boundaries of innovation, and all the esports professionals who helped test and refine our ideas along the way. This hard work has led to a long list of "firsts” which include:

And we are just getting started!

In addition to these product firsts, we celebrate many collaborations with game publishers like Bungie, Valve and Bethesda to bring product and game title collaborations around the most loved franchises in gaming like Destiny 2, Diablo IV and Genshin Impact.

Our passion for games, allowing them to envelope us, make us better, transport us to far away places is our drive. And it’s the best gig in the world!

Thank you for letting us be part of it.

Looking Ahead

We are excited to continue pushing boundaries, setting new standards, and serving esports professionals and gamers with the gear they need to achieve greatness. In fact, please stay tuned for our next big announcement in October. We will also continue to support the communities we work and live in, like working with: One Tree Planted, Doctors Without Borders, The It Gets Better Project, World Wildlife Organization, and many more.

So, here’s to the next 1,000 blogs, to more firsts, to countless victories, and to the unwavering bond we share with our incredible fans.

We’ll be right here experiencing the highs and lows of the game, anticipating and delivering products that best suit them, and viewing life through the lens of worlds far more fantastic than where we live today!

Thank you for being an integral part of our journey. Together, we will continue to reach FOR GLORY!
