French and Chilean students experience the adrenaline of entrepeneurship! – GameLab Education – Games and Simulations for Operations Management classes

French and Chilean students came together last April to feel the adrenaline of entrepeneurship. But without taking any risk. How? By playing the Venture Creation Game in our 1st French-Chilean Tournament.

More than 30 students of the Master MTI of Universite Paris Dauphine visited Chile.  A perfect chance to take a look to its unique entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem, and be part of GameLab’s Tournament.

We are very happy of having been invited to take part of this friendly competition between the Chilean students and ours”, said Albert David, Director of the Master MTI of the UniversiteParis Dauphine .

Entrepeneurship goes beyond languages! 

Entrepeneurship gamificationFor this activity, students created binational teams, with students from local Universidad Adolfo Ibanez. Even when there was a communication gap, the universal pleasure of playing to be entrepeneurs went beyond languages, allowing them not only to understand each other but also to have a blast!

The Venture Creation Game mimics the difficulties of entrepeneurship: from developing the idea towards launching the product. When playing, students have to make decisions such as: developing a network of contacts, forming a work team, and gathering information to choose the appropriate customer segment.
