• The Next Big Thing: The Game of Entrepreneurship

    A board game for people who are into being startup superheroes, changing the world, and becoming billionaires. Take on the role of a startup founder to create "the next big thing." Create a company using your savings and superpower skills (i.e. programming, design, sales, marketing, etc.), gain traction, and raise multiple rounds of capital from investors.

    Players experience the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial journey including: increasing revenues while balancing against expenses (try not to go bankrupt!), various types of significant events (good and bad!), and creating an impact that changes the world (as it's not just about the money!).

     

    There are multiple paths players can take during the game such as an accelerator path (a startup university), pivot paths (take longer and cost more), and if you survive to the end players get the opportunity to decide if they want to be acquired or do an IPO. The winner is the player who exits ("cashes out") for the most money and generates the largest positive impact on the world.

  • Created by a husband and wife team, a venture capital investor and serial entrepreneur, who love to play board games. One day when they were looking for a board game to play, they saw two of their favorite games on the shelf, The Game of Life and Monopoly. They thought, "why can't there be a board game about entrepreneurship that could exist in everyone's home just like these two classics?"

     

    Like every good investor and entrepreneur they researched the market and found that there was a white space that they could fill. They created a prototype and then shared it with their friends, many of whom were fellow investors and startup founders, to have them play the game and get their feedback. The first players loved it, and after iterating further, it got better and better with each group that played, and the creators of the board game knew they were really onto something! A frequent quote the founders hear from players is “Everyone should play this game before starting a company.” Whether you’re interested in launching a startup now or in the future, or just interested in having fun with friends and family, this game is for you.
