What is Startup Games Warsaw?

  • Startup Games is a giant pitching competition – with a twist. It's a real-time investment simulation, where founders pitch their start-ups/scale - ups to 'investors'.

  • The rules are simple and comprises two groups - the entrepreneur founders as well as “investors”. Each founder’s company is profiled on the app and is valued at £1million at the beginning of the game.
  • The main aim of the event is to help entrepreneurs improve their pitching skills as well as provide mentoring and best practice presentations from UK and Polish experts.

  • Start Up Games is  a mix of pitching and networking alongside managed panel discussions and presentations. It attempts to mimic the feel of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the challenges that entrepreneurs face using Start Up Games bespoke app (iOS and Android).

Rules of the Startup Games

  1. The Start Up Games is a mix of pitching and networking alongside panel discussions and presentations. It attempts to mimic the feel of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the challenges that entrepreneurs face.
  2. The format is relatively simple and comprises two groups, namely the entrepreneur founders as well as “investors”. Each founder’s company is profiled on the app and is valued at £1million at the beginning of the game.
  3. The main aim of the event is to help entrepreneurs improve their pitching skills as well as provide mentoring and best practice presentations from experts. It is very dynamic and an exciting way of addressing areas that are crucial to any start up or scale up founder. 
  4. It is a real time, simulated investment game where founders of tech start-ups/scale ups pitch to “investors” and other entrepreneurs taking part for “virtual” funding using our Startup Games bespoke app for iOS and Android.
  5. The pitching is free form and not in front of a jury. Instead, the onus is on the founders to pitch to everyone taking part in order to try to raise as much “virtual investment” as they can.  It is very important to provide feedback after the pitch as part of the learning process and can encourage the founders to adjust their pitch accordingly.
  6. The investors invest in companies by bidding for shares using the app and the companies, who set the stock price at the outset, can accept or refuse the offer. Each company starts off with 100 shares  and the winner of the game is the entrepreneur/company that has raised the most money and therefore achieved the highest valuation.
  7. The winners of Startup Games will recive valuable prizes.
  8. Join us at evening reception on 11th March to know more about the game. This will be as well good opputunity to network among UK and Polish guests.
