WHAT ELSE HAVE WE DONE IN THE PILOT?
On top of beta testing the game, we also alpha tested other projects as part of the sandbox. That's badass!
WHAT IS IN THE NEAR FUTURE?
The roadmap is looking hefty and exciting. Check out some of the amazing things that we will work on this year.
At the moment a user can spend at least 350 hours on the platform (an hour a day for a year) to skill up & build.
METAVERSE

We are expanding into 3D! Construction of the F/MS village has started and the Lounge is already in VR. Education will never be the same again!

BLOCKCHAIN
In collaboration with Big Companies, we are adding more blockchain into Skill Lab and into the Talent. Micro-funding is coming and it will be based on hard data!
LINK TO EMPLOYMENT

Alpha testing of the startup and talent portfolio feature to put employability into the game mechanics is already ongoing. We will add AI in HR and rock the boat!

PITCHORA PRIZE
MyMama, a female-founded startup from Malta won a year of "play to build" support that starts in September. From Shark Tank to Fe/male Switch: edutainment for all startup fans. Don't miss it!

Sign up for the startup game or start learning in the startup school.
entrepreneurial education
More and more companies are steering away from the CV-based approach to hiring candidates towards skills-based evaluation. Live certificate is an updatable portfolio of micro-credentials and uncertifiable skills with "proof of achievement" that paints a holistic picture of any individual.
skills certification
Different levels and themes. Starting from "build a landing page" to "blockchain and NFTs". Connecting (future) talent with business in need of digital transformation and government in need of an innovative approach to economic growth.

hackathons
Offline networking events in Malta, aka "startup villa party" where entrepreneurs, mentors and investors get to network over a glass of wine and lots of food at a villa with a pool and magnificent view.

NETWORKING EVENTS
Have your software tested by women in order to catch unconscious bias that will make you lose revenues. Give your software for free to our users and you will have future loyal customers. Sign up for the Bias Score in textual data project and attract a diverse crowd to your website and social media.
SOFTWARE TESTING
Do you have problems with recruiting the right employees? We can help you set up the funnel and provide you with a pool of talented individuals who possess all the necessary digital skills that an innovative company requires. We use distributed recruitment validation in order to get unbiased results.
TALENT SOURCING
Team building combined with upskilling is the best way to improve employee satisfaction. Encourage employees to develop themselves and grow their inner entrepreneur. They can create their own virtual startup and compete between departments or become mentors to junior users of the game.
TEAM BUILDING
We can be a funnel for any incubator and take care of preparing applicants for any business incubator or accelerator. We also provide data insights about the incubated startups after they graduate so you can have success statistics beyond the program.
