Event Details

LightStart presents... The Entrepreneurial Gameshow!!

Welcome to Play Your Business Cards Right, the game where three teams of Entrepreneurs truly have their skills tested.

Play as your real (or fantasy) start-up, where each round represents a year in the life of your business... In front of a panel of high profile judges, you're given randomly selected business scenarios, and have just two minutes to formulate the best response you can.  

Our judges - local business legends - rate the team responses, and give valuable advice and feedback on how they would have approached the situation.  The business with the best response had a good year and goes up, the second best stays flat, and the third... well, there's nothing below ground level.  It's as simple as that.

Come along and see entrepreneurs put through their paces in a proper gameshow setting - learn how they respond to different real-world business situations... and gain absolutely invaluable advice from our team of judges.
