It all began at Morgan Stanley, where we came up with the idea of creating a tool that immerses participants in key financial transactions, allowing them to really understand Finance and the motivations of the involved parties.
Bankers from across the firm participated to make the experience as realistic as possible. After various iterations, the result was a tool that exceeded our expectations and received excellent user feedback. We are now independent, VC-backed, and are radically improving finance education with gamified simulation training.

We try to gamify our main finance experiences to the fullest. Then we put our serious hats on and transform these experiences into authentic, real-world financial simulations.
Creating a seamlessly running simulation, involves hundreds of hours of, game design, content development, coding, testing, and refining. To date, we've launched over 10 simulations, each tailored to distinct Financial Services areas with unique modules.
We try to provide the best possible immersive experience. We invest heavily in product development, ensuring our simulations are equipped with the latest advancements that are robust, responsive, and truly reflective of real-world financial complexities.
We update our simulations every quarter, integrating the latest market dynamics, regulations, and feedback from our user community. We're completely transparent with our technology to empower and educate institutions to adopt our approach.
We immerse participants into 'on-the-job' pressurized transactions and deal flows. Our simulations help learners to understand the big picture of Financial Services and what it is like to work in the field.
The simulation experience is intense as participants are exposed to pressurized Financial Services transactions and deal flows.
The combination of team-based and candidate-only challenges provide powerful insights into whether candidates will perform well ‘on the job’. This allows employers to take job applicants on a test drive before hiring them.
