The GoVenture Experience

  • Experience what it is like to manage numerous business and personal tasks.
  • Make necessary compromises to reach both business and personal success.
  • Learn what you need to know to start a business in minutes, not months.

This simulation makes learning about being an entrepreneur fun. You can run the simulation for as long as you want. You can dive in using the QuickStart feature or take the time to go through the Personal and Business Profiles to select and start a business. You can conduct business, get advice, attend training seminars, and even close or sell your company. At any point, you may save your simulation and return to it later. There is no penalty for failure, so if your first business doesn’t succeed, try another. You can even control how fast the simulation time clock runs!

You can check your own personal financial status or your company’s at any time. Review the business’ financial statements and charts on recent operations. If you’re doing well, you can pay yourself a bonus and buy one of those items on your wish list. Watch out for random events — you could become injured and have to stay home for a while. Or if you forget your spouse’s birthday your stress level may go up. If your stress level is too high, you may have to take some time off from the company. Can your employees run it without you? The simulation immerses you in a life-like world of entrepreneurship and small business — a world where you still have to remember to pay your bills and get enough sleep. It is an engaging experience, which makes learning fun, as you build an understanding of what it is like to be an entrepreneur and to meet the challenges of starting and running a small business.
