GoMetro, SA’s home-grown Public Transport App, in partnership with renowned entrepreneurial development specialist, Nic Dupper, is proud to announce the release of Inyuku – an in App Game designed to train budding entrepreneurs. Through this Q&A mobile game, GoMetro aims to identify and provide access to opportunities to potential entrepreneurs.

How does playing a game help to create entrepreneurism in South Africa? Well, Inyuku is much more than just a game. It is an educational experience, the result of 8 years of research by Nic Dupper, a psychologist and sociologist. Nic’s main focus has always been the importance of empowering people through sustainable business practices, and the importance of ensuring people and businesses have the appropriate skills to establish their competitiveness.

Why does South Africa need more entrepreneurs? Entrepreneurs do so much more than just create an income for themselves; they have the ability to improve the conditions for a prosperous society. Successful entrepreneurs’ innovations can change the way we all live and work.

How important are entrepreneurs to a country’s economy? A successful new business venture results in new employment, which can add to further economic development. For example, development efforts in underdeveloped countries requires robust logistics support, capital investment and a qualified workforce. From the construction worker to the highly qualified programmer, a successful entrepreneur creates benefits across a wide spectrum of the economy.

Entrepreneurs also contribute to community development by assisting other ventures. They invest in community projects and donate financial support to local charities. This enables further development beyond their own ventures.

Learning through gaming has become a key educational intervention. Inyuku helps a player learn the fundamentals of starting his own business. It challenges budding entrepreneurs to find innovative solutions to everyday problems. This e-learning experience makes learning faster, more engaging and friendlier, according to “the training room online”.

Playing Inyuku rewards players for finding solutions to problems. Where most people see a problem, the game teaches a person to see an opportunity. The player will be required to register and log in to the game in order to save his profile, his game progress and his Zakas (the score currency earned in the game). A player will be asked a series of questions and will have multiple answers to choose from. Zaka will be awarded for answering questions correctly. 50 New entrepreneurial questions will be released every month, with a total of 300 questions for the complete game, so a player can come back and learn more about different aspects of business. The game is also re-playable, allowing the player an opportunity to build up his score by correcting previous mistakes.
