From the press 

An interview with Simcha Gluck on FreshBiz, the game, the vision, and the campaign.

The future of business is right now and we are here to serve the world in ushering in a brand new entrepreneurial spirit, mindset, and attitude that breeds fun, creative thinking, success, and win/win partnerships!

Ronen first began developing FreshBiz back in 2004, and it took him around 6 years to release the first version of the game. 

The idea for the game came from Ronen's real life experiences as an entrepreneur, and his passion as a coach & trainer to help sync the world up with the new game of business and life that we're now playing. So many people are finding themselves stuck, playing the new game with the old rules, and FreshBiz was Ronen's answer to helping people develop the right mindset and skills to get up to speed and excel. 

The new rules of the game are collaboration, win-win, adaptability, creativity,  and multi-dimensional thinking, just to name a few...and playing FreshBiz is the perfect way to practice using all them, while having a blast!

You are also welcome to meet me on my Facebook Page 

Simply put, our mission is to help the world win the game; the right game, and with the most number of people possible, which is why we naturally chose the Kickstarter community as the place to launch this project. 

We've already created the FreshBiz first edition game that's been making a huge difference in the way people play life, business, and relationships, but your contribution will support us in taking the Quantum Leap needed to deliver this fun game & premier entrepreneurial training tool to players around the world!

In a nutshell, your love and support will allow us to generate the money needed to launch our second addition of the game on both digital and physical platforms.

The digital game - creation of the digital iPad/Android/PC/Mac game with multiple languages, levels, trainings, better AI, achievements, etc...

The physical game - redesign, manufacture, packaging, shipping, storage, delivery, customer service, and support for FreshBizers. 

With your help (money, support and networking) we will be able to build a global movement of FreshBizers, entrepreneurial thinkers just like you, so more people can pursue their dreams and play at the highest level possible. 

We are excited to create a phenomenal experience for the FBZers community where everything is fully integratable and players around the world can seamlessly play online or in real life in any language, with ease. So, as you travel around playing, networking, and doing business, this will be your connection to  the right people!  .

FreshBiz is a game that fundamentally changes the way its participants play their business and life by simulating and then practicing new, creative methods of entrepreneurial thinking, and problem solving to achieve their most vital goals.

Through its game-based learning, participants travel through the game on a mission to win, while gaining skills, understandings and strategies that not only help them to achieve the goals in the game, but also to excel in their lives.

Utilizing common business practices, and years of insight from entrepreneurs, FreshBiz uses tools such as the buying & selling of businesses, leveraging, negotiations, loans, business opportunities and more to simulate a business environment. Simultaneously, relationships are being forged and the atmosphere of the room buzzes as participants engage with themselves and others in entrepreneurial, multi-dimensional thinking.

Insights gained during a 60 to 90-minute game last far into the future, as our participants claim that the game impacts them for the rest of their lives. There is a distinction between change and transformation. Working harder, doing something less, spending more time else, etc… are change, while transformation through FreshBiz is what shifts your paradigm completely and offers you the opportunity to play business, relationships, and life in a whole new way.

THE FreshBiz GAME CONTAINS:
  • 24 Action Card
  • 24 Loan Cards
  • 24 Market Cards
  • 4 Business Initiative Cards
  • 24 Stock Cards
  • 2 Dice
  • 4 Avatars
  • 1 FreshBiz Board
  • Tens of Millions Worth of Chips
  • 1 Basic Rules Sheet

The Board
As you play FreshBiz, your goal is to reach the "Winner" lot in 90 minutes.
In order to achieve your objective, as you pass from section to section (paying tolls to pass), you will have to handle different business dimensions and practice entrepreneurial skills.

The Businesses
In order to pay tolls as you cross through the board on the way to the Island, you will need to earn money. One of the many ways to do that is by starting businesses.
Each player gets different businesses cards and each business card has an establishment cost and a profit.
You will have to be creative and smart in handling your budget, cash flow, and strategy in order to turn your original capital into the profits you need to move ahead in the game.

Action Cards

Just as in life, each player starts the game with their own unique set of Action Cards. Essentially, these are your gifts, talents and special abilities in the game.
It's up to you to use them in the best way possible, and they can be played during any turn. So, be creative and you will make money and friends:) 

The Stock Market, Loans, & Partnerships 
As you go through the game, there will be many business dimensions that you can leverage to help you win, such as the Stock Market, Loans, Partnerships and more...
The more dimensions you master the better results you will get and the more fun you will have...in FreshBiz and in life! So go win!

Who is the FreshBiz Game for?
Educators, Entrepreneurs, Gamers, Coaches, Children, Corporate Trainers, Students, FreshBizers, HR, Small Business Owners, Families, & Self Development Lovers.
