So why not make one?
Venture Valley is Gosier’s newest project. It’s a card game that puts you in an investor’s shoes. Gosier, who runs a company called D8A, described it as poker, Monopoly and Magic the Gathering all rolled into one.
He’s raising $7,500 to launch the game.
Here’s Gosier’s rundown of the game, via email:
In Venture Valley players choose from companies they want to invest in and make investments using chips — similar to the ones used in poker. The goal of the game is to build the strongest portfolio of companies that earn the most money. There’s a lot of strategy involved, but there’s also a lot of chance and unpredictability which mirrors what its like in real-world investing.
The game is in line with Gosier’s philosophy of making the investment world more accessible, a driving force behind his fund Third Cohort, which has invested in three startups so far.
His company D8A is also pivoting from a data analytics company to a creative design agency, he told us.-30-
