Startup Unicorns! is a 2-5 player "race-to-the-top" card game about founders and startups designed by Steven De Salas.

Great for everyone, but especially for young people, Startup Unicorns introduces many concepts for setting up and running your own tech company in a relaxed and fun manner.

As the players take their fledging startup from its birth to success as unicorn, the game creates a friendly environment for introducing relevant themes of team building, synergy, cash flow management, valuation / raising capital, adversity, mismanagement, sheer luck, and a lot of the necessary ingredients for turning a product idea into reality (in this day and age!),

As a crowdfunding effort, this is a creative project that has yet to be produced. Rather than a product you buy in the shop.

After funding the project, it'll take around two months at least until you receive your reward (it has to be manufactured!). However by supporting this project, you'll also feel part of making something new, as the creative endeavor cannot go ahead without your backing.
