(RICHMOND, VA) – Elliott Eddie, the inventor and founder of The Entrepreneur Game, an award-winning board game, will be featured on a History Channel special later this month. As a modern-day history maker, his game is the world’s first and only STEM accredited board game that teaches business and entrepreneurship.
In addition to the History Channel feature, Elliott will also be inducted into the Black Inventor’s Hall of Fame’s “Black Inventor’s Got Game” in Spring 2022. He has also been featured in Newsweek Magazine’s “Best in STEM 2021”, and was awarded the Virginia Department of Education’s “Creating Excellence Award”.
The Entrepreneur Game is educational entertainment that the whole family can enjoy, intended for players ages 12 and up. With 2-6 players, the journey begins around a classic-style board game. Each player is the Founder and CEO of his or her own home-based or brick-and-mortar business. The objective of the game is to grow the business into an empire, through marketing, budgeting, investing, decision-making, negotiating deals, and a host of other 21st Century skills — all while avoiding bankruptcy or figuring out how to bounce back from bankruptcy! When all the players reach the “finish” spot, whoever has the most in cash and non-cash assets wins. And if you become a millionaire, everyone in the game has to say your name and say, “You are an incredible entrepreneur. Please teach me your wisdom.” And they have to say it because it’s in the rules.
The Entrepreneur Game is the critical piece missing from most children’s education. The Entrepreneur Game enhances players’ confidence, critical thinking skills, decision-making skills, marketing, investing, communication, budgeting, and problem-solving skills. This STEM Accredited educational game serves as a gateway for children and adults to learn about money, innovation, and entrepreneurship, using 21st Century skills to gainfully maneuver on the road to success, financial freedom, and legacy.
Because of the loss of more than 1 million minority-owned small businesses due to the pandemic, Elliott has decided to host the Ultimate Entrepreneur Competition to help entrepreneurs build successful businesses that are able to withstand faltering economies. He comments, “The Entrepreneur Game is investing in our children’s and our community’s future by creating an entrepreneur movement and hosting this one-of-a-kind event to invest into active and aspiring entrepreneurs, both young and mature.”
The competition will be held in Richmond, Virginia on November 20th, 2021, and is giving away over $1,500 in cash and prizes. The competition is free and open to the public, and there’s no cost for registration. Eventually, the competition will premiere around the country in various cities and states. Companies and organizations of all types are invited to participate.
