Dream 71 Bangladesh, a local company, yesterday signed a deal with a British entrepreneur of Bangladeshi origin to launch a board game to develop business skills to digital platforms soon.
The game created by Sabirul Islam is currently being used as an educational tool in European schools in 20 countries. Users will be able to learn about different aspects of business through the game.
The digital version of the game will be called Teen-Trepreneur Fusion and it will be free for download and available on android and IOS platforms.
Teen-Trepreneur Fusion is a interactive business game where anyone can build a business empire, trade in the stockmarket, generate sales, make tough choices and compete to be the ultimate business tycoon, said Rashad Kabir, managing director of Dream 71, at the event at Westin hotel in Dhaka.
The plan is to launch the app to mark the Global Money Week in March 2016, and it will take about five to six months to bring the game to the digital platform, Kabir said.
The soft launch may take place in November, he said.
Dream 71 will also build a web version and then a windows application, Kabir said.
Shameem Ahsan, president of Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services, was also present.
“It is our failure that we could not make Sabirul and other Bangladeshi origin expatriates like him a part of the development process of Bangladesh,” Ahsan said.
