What is Startup Escape?

Startup Escape is disrupting the team building market through gamification. Our paradigm shifting platform leverages the Internet of Things to create into an immersive ecosystem that to allows your team to unlock its full potential.

So… it's a startup-themed escape room?

Yeah pretty much.

How does it work?

You'll have one hour to navigate through a swag-filled, motivational-poster-adorned startup office to "launch" before your faux investment money runs out. You'll have to complete clues in 5 categories before the time runs out. (Don't worry, you don't actually need to know any of these skills!)


Is it good for team bonding?

It's a great activity for a team to do. If you work at a startup or a larger company, Startup Escape is perfect for your team of 2-12 people! It involves good communication and working together under high-pressure situations. We'll even generate you an invoice for all your tedious accounting needs.

Where is it located?

Startup Escape is in the Tenderloin North SOMA! The address is 447 O'Farrell St, San Francisco CA. There's a bit of parking, but we recommend taking a Lyft or Uber.

What do I get if we escape?

Is the satisfaction of a job well done not good enough? Fine, we'll let you put your company's sticker on our wall if you escape in time.

Will I be placed with other people?

Nope! You'll be playing alone with just your team.

I don't work at a startup. Can I still do it?

Of course! You might not get all the jokes, but you don't need any sort of outside knowledge that isn't provided for you inside the game… and honestly, they aren't that funny, so you're not really missing out on anything.

What does it look like inside?

We don't want to spoil too much, but here's some close-up pics! If you realllllly want the room design spoiled, there's some more pics on our Product Hunt page.
