Learning Entrepreneurship by Playing Ms. Pacman

Entrepreneurship and gameplay are much alike. Players, plotlines, strategy, challenges and score keeping are key aspects of both. This talk focuses on the gameplay of Ms. Pacman and delivers key entrepreneurship lessons that come by playing this classic game, including:

Starting at zero with only a quarter
Wow, this quickly gets fast
Clearing dots
Pivots to success
Channels help
Everything is timing
The ghosts you’ll encounter
Being patient

Let's play!
