Start-Up Some Fun

Big ideas + big money = the Next Big Thing. This board game lets players experience the high-stakes adventure of creating their own start-up companies, from bootstrapping with initial cash and "superpowers" (i.e. programming) to raising capital to deciding whether to sell the company or retain shares through an IPO. The husband and wife team behind the game—Jenna and J. Skyler Fernandes—often hear from players that "everyone should play this game before starting a company." Strategic fun for families, office teams, and young entrepreneurs, it teaches financial lessons to players 12 years and up in an active, accessible way. For 2-6 players. Requires 45 minutes to two hours to play. Made in China.

One day when husband and wife team Jenna and J. Skyler Fernandes were looking for a board game to play, they saw two of their favorites on the shelf—The Game of Life and Monopoly. They thought, "Why can't there be a board game about entrepreneurship that could be added to everyone's game collection 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 invited their friends, many of whom were fellow investors and startup founders, to play the game and give feedback. When the first players loved it, and it got better with each iteration and group that played, Jenna and Sky knew they were onto something. They hope you enjoy playing the game and that it inspires you to create “the next big thing."
