VIDEO: Cashless Incubator

The Cashless Incubator is a skills for resources trading game.  It also teaches about contracts, market testing ideas, and investing.

The Cashless Incubator is one of the two games along with Pitch Drill that will be played at our upcoming Teen Entrepreneur Fall Series events starting Tuesday, October 7th at Greensboro Public Library branches sponsored by Summit Credit Union.

Teen Entrepreneur Series @ Greensboro Library sponsored by Summit Credit Union

We are excited to announce the follow up to our successful Economic Literacy Summer Series at Greensboro Public Library with the Teen Entrepreneur Fall Series sponsored by Summit Credit Union.

This series is different in two big ways:
TE-Logo-3001) Each Teen Entrepreneur event consists of our Pitch Drill and Cashless Incubator games held back to back per event to help players learn in a fun environment the basics of developing a business plan, presenting it, developing product ideas, market testing those ideas, and how to trade their skills for resources with little or no money.
PP-Logo-New-3002) After completing a Teen Entrepreneur event, players have the opportunity to submit their own teen business idea to compete with seven others at our November 18th PitchPocalypse contest with $300 going to the winning startup along with great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners.  Details provided on the entry form available to players of our Teen Entrepreneur Events.

We’ll be going into more detail as these events approach.  In the mean time, please help spread the word about this great series coming to the Greensboro Public Library.  Here are the events dates:

A series of Economy, Jr. events from mid-September to mid-October is being considered as part of this series so if you’ve got a school, congregation, or youth group in the Greensboro area interested, Contact Us because we may be able to find a sponsor to hold an event for your teens.

Economy, Jr. @ Asheboro Library August 16th and 23rd Sponsored by Truliant Federal Credit Union

[Note: the August 30th event has been cancelled]
PUBLIC (FREE) EVENT – On Saturday, August 16th and 23rd from 1:00 to 3:00pm, Asheboro Public Library will hold Economy, Jr. free for area teens sponsored by Truliant Federal Credit Union.

The goal of these events is to teach young adults about real world economics by having them play through the game as a customer spending a month’s paycheck on bills for housing, utilities, child care, groceries, and more for them and their families without going bankrupt.  The other half of participants will play as the merchants selling products and services to customers with the aim of covering their overhead costs and posting a profit.  Customers and merchants which switch roles half way through the game to experience both sides of the economic coin.

The entrepreneur support group Shift, Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur Group, is helping organize volunteers for the Saturday events.

Asheboro Public Library
201 Worth Street
Asheboro, NC 27203
