This short paper outlines an academic’s entrepreneurial journey from idea conception to the market place. Sort Ed is an interactive board game designed for paediatric student nurses and it set in a child’s ward. There is a huge market demand for this type of educational games in the UK especially by institutions that run healthcare management courses. This learning tool is a major contribution to the limited number of interactive educational games currently available to healthcare tutors and students. Simulated learning benefits of the game enables students to develop required transferable skills needed to succeed in the work place.
