Business Simulation Game

From Idea to IPO, the Year's Most Original Game

In Start Up 2000 you're the boss, a savvy CEO renegade running a high-tech corporation. From your virtual desk, you oversee every aspect of your product's development, production and distribution. You manage your employees, devise marketing strategies and stay one step ahead of your competitors. It's a risky market place, where fortunes are made overnight and disappear in an instant.

Your success or failure will determine whether you retire rich or go bankrupt.

You're a young entrepreneur with a new product ready for market, but the road to your first million is full of risk. Do you have the business acumen to navigate the torrent of market change, keep competitors at bay and parley investors' seed money into fortune?

From your virtual desk and office you have access to every department - Marketing, Human Resources, Public Relations, Finance and Distribution.
