This is a Dublin StartUp Week event

Using the business simulation platform SimVenture Evolution, participants are challenged to set up and grow a bicycle manufacturing company and develop into a High Potential Start-Up ( as per the Enterprise Ireland definition - A HPSU can be defined as a company that is internationally focused and has the potential to employ at least 10 persons within 3 years of starting and to generate revenues of at least €1million). Starting at Y1Q1 and managing the business until Y3Q2 (3.5 years).
The challenge includes developing the best sustainable business and this includes company valuation, sales value, profitability, and efficiency.

This event starts with an introductory workshop at 10 am and then moves online, both individuals or groups are welcome to enter. Leaderboards will operate, rewinds/restarts will be available. Prizes will be confirmed.
This is an excellent applied-learning opportunity for developing entrepreneurial management skills and also to better understand the emotional rollercoaster of developing a High Potential Start-Up. In recognition of completing/achieving HPSU status certificates will be awarded. (a nice addition to any CV)

Financial Health Warning - The value of your business may rise or fall depending on the decisions you make. Beware you may also experience an insolvency and be shut down by the Bank. No personal guarantees involved so recovery will be possible by using some of the available rewinds/restarts.
