Our mission is to enhance business acumen, management literacy and employee skill sets using Paradigm Learning’s suite of innovative simulation games throughout Africa.



It is always difficult to explain the financial side of any business to non-finance managers. Our experience showed that people gain a far better understanding of a difficult concept if they actually see it and use hands on concrete models, rather than be given a verbal explanation. Zodiak has certainly made it much easier for me to talk to people about financial matters.
