ABOUT

Quantum Kingdom
Problem:

Teamwork can make all the difference between mission success and failure. Building teamwork relies traditionally on in-person exercises with qualitative observations by instructors. These exercises fail to reliably assess interpersonal skills, leading to large losses in time and money and organizational effectiveness.

Solution:

Modern online games require the same relevant skills needed for team dynamics. Quantum Kingdom offers a multiplayer gaming platform that naturally assesses these skills.

Value Proposition:

Quantum Kingdom enables organizations to improve the effectiveness of their teams, making teamwork a strategic advantage over competing organizations.
