Game on: be a virtual entrepreneur with Cambridge Enterprise and IPSim

by Dan Lucas

Are you a Cambridge postdoc who wants to learn the basics of entrepreneurship? Do you like video games? We have just the event for you.

Cambridge Enterprise, in collaboration with software developer Tacit Sims, is hosting a unique workshop to help teach postdocs the basics of entrepreneurship with the help of IPSim, a real-time business strategy video game that takes participants through the stress and success of owning intellectual property (IP).

Running the event will be Wesley Randle, owner of IPSim, who has a background in entrepreneurship and creating board and video games that help teach the basics of entrepreneurship and owning IP.

The evening will kick off with pizza and drinks before participants play IPSim. Players will be exposed to the basic knowledge necessary to become an entrepreneur, and maximising the potential of IP ownership.

With newfound knowledge in hand, postdocs will compete to see which team can use their virtual IP to create the greatest success in a virtual global business environment.

So why not learn the ins and outs of being an entrepreneur without risking any of the money? You literally have nothing to lose.

Interested? The event will be held on 5 July, from 17:30 to 21:00 at the Hauser Forum on the West Cambridge Site.
