BattMan Startup Simulation game
Time & Location
BattMan is a software based startup simulation game. The crash-course in managing a technology-based startup is played in groups of 2 to 4 students per startup. The game is structured in rounds. Each round the students decide about hiring people, investment in development, production for the next season, etc.
After every round the startup will develop depending on the decision the team made. The teams themselves are embedded in a simulated market consisting of roughly 5-8 other startup teams. Over time, there will be successful startups as well as some startups that went bankrupt.
BattMan was developed by Steve Ahn. Steve Ahn is an entrepreneur from South Korea who had a successful IPO with his company LEADIS TECHNOLOGY INC. in 2004. Since 2014, Steve Ahn is working for the Institute Startup KAIST, Korea’s leading technical university, and K-School promoting tech-based startups and helping build up a healthy startup ecosystem in Korea.
