Introducing Startup Trail: A Game About The Policy Challenges Tech Startups Face

Can you survive the Startup Trail?

Try guiding your own startup from inception to IPO in a fun, new browser-playable startup policy simulator game called Startup Trail.

The free game is built to help everyone better appreciate the many policy, legal, and regulatory challenges faced by US startup founders today. Startup Trail game

It's your chance to act as a startup CEO and learn about the many challenges of building a successful tech startup in the face of all sorts of obstacles.

Play the game to test your skills as a Startup Founder!

Startup Trail was developed by Copia in partnership with Engine. Engine is a trade group for startups that advocates for important policy issues that impact the startup ecosystem.

We recommend that everyone reading this invest a few minutes to play this game.

As of Techdirt wrote when introducing the game:

"You can play the game in any desktop/laptop browser (sorry, not for mobile devices currently), and go from the founding stage as far as you can take your startup.

But beware, there are all sorts of challenges along the way, from data privacy to patent trolls to copyright and much, much more.

You need to survive those challenges, but also make sure you have enough money on hand to keep going, enough users joining your service to keep it viable, and enough talent and technology to actually keep things running.

And you’ll have to do it all without getting too distracted by everyone who wants some of your valuable time and focus…"

Startup Trail is an excellent introduction to the many strategic and legal decisions that startup CEOs often face - especially the types of problems that you don't see coming!

Thanks to the team at and at Techdirt for creating this innovative educational tool to help entrepreneurs and policy-makers!
