If you've ever dreamed of becoming an angel investor and making a mint by investing in the next Facebook or Twitter, Venture Crapital is the perfect game to help you hone your skills. This HTML5 game was built at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon and lets users invest funds in startups based on TechCrunch headlines.
Venture Crapital creators Chris Bliss, Dmitri Cherniak, Adrian Sanders and Wylie Conlon even integrated Crunchbase company information into the game. The object is to sell your investment before the tech bubble pops to maximize your returns and continue investing funds.
Like real-life investing, Venture Crapital relies on news headlines. "Bad news means bad growth, good news means good news for the company it's about," explains Dmitri Cherniak.
