Here are the pictures from Tuesday, January 27th’s Million Dollar Idea card game event at Hemphill Library that finished up with a “sudden death” final round sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting with organizing help from Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur group.
MDI is a card game that has players take turns being a customer while the other players try to convince them to purchase their products accumulating market share in the process.
There are two ways to win by either having the most market share at the end of the game (combined money and resources) or coming up with the best product idea in the game.

Thanks to all the branches of the Greensboro Public Library along with sponsor Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit for making the Economic Literacy Summer Series possible. Not to mention all the volunteers and participants. We’ll be announcing a similar event in the fall, but in the meantime, check out pictures from this June 7th to August 5th summer program:
For this Summer Series event and all others, Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union (GMFCU) is our generous sponsor with Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s entrepreneur group, helping organize volunteers.
Economy, Jr. provides students with insight into both sides of the economic coin by having them choose at the start of the game whether they want to play as a customer spending a month’s paycheck from their chosen career on necessities such as housing, groceries, child care, and more or as a merchant selling these products to customers to cover daily overhead and hopefully post a profit.
“Summer is all fun and games for a teen until they realize they have no idea how to balance a checkbook. With a heated national discourse around the financial struggles of post-grads squeezed by student debt and low-income jobs, the Greensboro Public Library and Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union have teamed up for an Economic Literacy Summer Series.
The series consists of programs held from June 7 to August 5 designed by ReBuildUp, a company based in Greensboro that provides resources to “inspire the current and next generation of entrepreneurs about economics and business.”
