Mahesh P. Joshi, an associate professor of global strategy and entrepreneurship, created BiggieBills while on vacation, after searching for years for an interactive strategy game to use in his classes. In December 2019, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office agreed and granted a patent for BiggieBills, a complex interactive strategy game designed for executive training, company retreats and business classes. BiggieBills will be available for licensing agreements in May, once the game is digitalized.
“The idea that I should create a game to help people better understand complex business strategy had been festering in my brain for a while,” said Joshi. “But the details of what that game would be came together at once, and I had to rush to get it down.”
Joshi was the founding director of Mason’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and recently served as its director of research and practice. In addition to teaching Mason students and research, Joshi advises and provides consulting to the public-sector, private-sector, and not-for-profit organizations about corporate entrepreneurship and strategic and cross-cultural business management.
