Some parents have new dreams for their kids—make them Fortnite experts.
With more than 125 million players across the world, Fortnite’s immense popularity, which has drawn everyone from pre-teens to superstar musicians like Drake, has led to some parents hiring video game coaches to help their kids win.
“My son was actually beginning to play and he actually wanted to get a little bit more competitive,” Nick Mennen, whose son plays Fortnite, told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “When I saw that there was a university that started offering a scholarship for it, I decided that it was a good approach for his future.”
Parents are willing to shell out around $20 per hour for a coach to help their kids improve, according to Fortnite coach Cesar Sainz.
