Popular streamer Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofstetter is now co-owner of the gaming and lifestyle brand 100 Thieves. “I am proud to be one of the first female co-owners in sport and also to be excited about our future together,” said Hofstetter shared via her personal Twitter account.
The announcement marks a new milestone in a career that is exceptional in personality. Hofstetter flocked to the esports organization for three years before being announced as a co-owner alongside mainstream stars like Drake. While it’s unclear what the role will mean in terms of responsibilities, the move is noteworthy when looking at Valkyrae’s career. While celebrities can and do announce esports partnerships because they have money to play around with, Valkyrae is a streamer making her way up. Not only is she one of the greatest female streamers, but she can now say that she is a stakeholder in the business she signed.

100 thieves also announced that streamer and YouTube personality Jack “CouRage” will also join Dunlop as co-owners. The two are well-known names like Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Scooter Braun and Dan Gilbert.
“In my opinion, this is probably the most important day in the history of the 100 thieves,” said Haag said in a video in which the two were introduced as co-owners. “I never could have predicted that we would sit here officially welcoming Valkyrae and CouRage as co-owners of 100 thieves.”
Since the announcement, people have poured out their hearts to support them. Well-known names like Corpse Husband and Neekolul were among the names they cheered on.
