1/13: MDI @ Glenwood Library sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting

Crest-MDI-GLENWOOD-I-300PUBLIC EVENT – On Tuesday, January 13th Glenwood Library will host the Million Dollar Idea card game from 6-7pm.

MDI has players pitch other players on products and services they think customers will like 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.

This event is sponsored by Michael Robinson Accounting with organizing help from Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur group.

New Card Game and January 2015 Events

MDI-Logo-300ReBuildUp 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.
