100 Thieves is welcoming two new co-owners, award-winning streamer Valkyrae (Rachel Hofstetter) and CourageJD (Jack Dunlop).
100 Thieves announced the new partnership in an introductory video on Twitter, where Hofstetter and Dunlop outlined their journey through content creation and now as co-owners of the team they've worked on for years.
Hofstetter’s appointment makes her the team’s first woman co-owner, and it’s a platform she hopes she can inspire others with.
“I feel like I can be a very good role model to not just my community, but to 100 Thieves’ community,” she said.

Dunlop said this was the point he’s been working toward since he first started in content creation.
He’d received an offer while working at Major League Gaming before 100 Thieves was born, but felt like he wasn’t ready.
“The feeling I had was I needed to do a lot of growing and 100 Thieves needed to do a lot of growing. I’ve seen a lot of success in my own content creation, and when the opportunity came up, it was something I could obviously never pass up.”
100 Thieves didn’t mention much about what projects Hofstetter and Dunlop have in store but promised there’s plenty to look forward to.
