When people think of fun ways of bonding and getting better at thinking business, Elliott Eddie's game allows both
A serial entrepreneur and a public speaker, Elliott Eddie has created a family game that does more than just entertain the people. According to Black News, The Entrepreneur Game teaches children and adults how to start and build a successful home-based and brick & mortar business in the comfort of their home.
This new player in the market aims to expand the knowledge and confidence of everyone who would consider becoming a captain of industry - particularly in the underserved and forgotten communities.
As a successful entrepreneur with over five companies that operate in the black, Elliott has taken his passions for entrepreneurship, public speaking and teaching and focused them on making this board game.
“This is what I love to do,” said Elliott. “We may learn a few things in school, but one of the subjects it’s unlikely that we’ve been taught is entrepreneurship: how to create and build successful businesses of our own. Many of our schools barely teach our children the skills they need to survive." he continued.
"We owe it to our children and all of our futures to make sure they know that they are capable of creating a successful business. To make sure our children know that they can take their skills, talents and ideas to find a problem and solve it, to find a need and fill it, or to create a market and build it." he added.
"Our children must grasp that among all of the things they can be now, and as they grow up, an entrepreneur is definitely within their grasp.”
n September of 2018, Elliott took his idea to the people; crowdfunding on Kickstarter. In less than five hours, The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks had been fully funded.
Moreover, when he had stayed for about two and a half week on the popular crowd-funding platform, his game ended up raising a target amount that was three times his target, with almost 350 people in eight different countries donating to the project.
