Start with a lemonade stand, level up to a kiosk, food truck, and full business then build a regional franchise from the ground up in the most realistic small business startup and operations simulation in the world.
Players will be guided through the experience based on their individual capabilities to maximize learning and assessment. Players who need a basic experience can focus on the lemonade stand and the kiosk and food truck businesses. Advanced players can progress to run a full business and establish a regional franchise.

Players can navigate an immersive 3D city to select business locations and watch customer activity and feedback in real time. The interface begins with basic options and increases in depth as the player progresses to higher levels.

The simulation is enhanced with over 100 microlearning modules that introduce business concepts using video and other media supported with knowledge checks, quizzes, and authentic skill assessment.

GoVenture Entrepreneur will be available late August 2020 and it will combine and replace all of these GoVenture business simulations: Lemonade Stand, Micro Business, Food Truck, Accounting, and Small Business. Free upgrades to an equivalent version will be provided to all customers who purchased any of these other programs within one year earlier.
If you need GoVenture right now, we will immediately provide you one of our existing business simulations and then upgrade you when ready.
GoVenture Entrepreneur will be available in two versions: BASIC and ADVANCED. The BASIC version will have a lower price but will not progress past the mobile cart and food truck businesses.
GoVenture Entrepreneur will be available as an Online Subscription and Perpetual License and included in the GoVenture SUITE. The Online version will work in the cloud on computers, Chromebooks, and tablets (but the interface will be too small for smartphones). The Perpetual and SUITE versions must be installed and run on Windows and Macintosh computers or school network.
