Participants went on to compete in the PitchPocalypse held the next day also at Central Library.
PUBLIC (FREE REGISTRATION) EVENT – We’re happy to announce the next ReBuildUp Course (Economy, Jr., Million Dollar Idea, Pitch Drill, and Cashless Incubator) will be held at the Co//ab in Downtown Greensboro on Saturday, March 14th 1-5pm. The Co//ab (pronounced “Co-Lab”) is the new collaborative coworking space for Triad entrepreneurs.
This ReBuildUp Course sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting will also serve as the qualifying event for the March 15th, 2:30-5:00pm PitchPocalypse business plan pitching contest held the next day at the Greensboro Central Library also in Downtown Greensboro.
If you’re 13-19 years old or want to enroll your teen to participate in both events, fill out this form to reserve your spot:
Here are the pictures from the Saturday, February 21st ReBuildUp Course held at Central Library in Downtown Greensboro sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting. Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing the location of the next ReBuildUp Course to be held also in Downtown Greensboro on Saturday, March 14th, 1-5pm the day before the rescheduled PitchPocalypse at Central Library on Sunday, March 15th, 2:30-5pm.
First up, Economy, Jr.
Time for cards with Million Dollar Idea.
The presentations begin with Pitch Drill.
It all comes together in the Cashless Incubator held at the end.
Due to some issues like the weather of the past week, we had a lower than expected turnout so we are rescheduling the PitchPocalypse to a later date in March, possibly on a Sunday to make it more convenient for students to attend. We will also be holding a 2nd ReBuildUp Course the Saturday before to increase our applicant pool for the contest.
Thank you again to Summit Credit Union, Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, and UNCG’s NC Entrepreneurship Center for their continued support with these events.
ReBuildUp will be debuting a new card game for 2-8 players (great for families) that teaches about salesmanship, cost of goods sold, and gross margins in a fun way. It works great as a pre-Economy, Jr. game and with a few extra card decks, you can have a tournament with up to 32 players at a time.
Teens in Greensboro are invited to come out and play on Tuesdays January 13th through 27th at Greensboro Library’s Glenwood, McGirt-Horton, and Hemphill branches. Visit our Events page for specific dates and times.
In late January/early February 2015 we plan on releasing an updated version of Economy, Jr. that will include the following additions:
– Player Orientation Video
– Credit Card Monthly Payment Store for Customer Players
– Business Licenses for Merchant Players
– One more addition in the works.
Contact us if you’re interesting in pre-ordering the new kit.
Thanks again for your support!
