What is the problem you found?
There is a lack of interest in learning about finance, and lack of resources to make it more engaging for people of all ages.
What is your opportunity?
How might we make finance engaging and accessible for all ages, to understand the responsibility in managing finances?
Who is your audience?
Young people who do not understand finance and how to be responsible with their money. They also want to have real life experiences to become educated about finance without damaging their real-life savings.
What Is Your Solution?
To create an interactive and educational adventure game to help people of all ages understand how to responsibly manage finances and understand concepts (e.g. taxes, superannuation, banking).
We would like connections to other people and companies with experience in game making, marketing and educational resources to help make our game available to as many schools and students as possible.
We would like advice on pricing for the game as well as the best ways to run a company. We would also like some real life experiences from adults to make our scenarios more accurate, and also to learn a bit more ourselves.
How to develop the game further, by covering more concepts to do with finance and also expanding to more age groups as well as using more complex game code to make the game more intricate and interesting. Also, adding more functions to the game for better ways to track your progress and more financial options.
