This GoVenture program has been replaced with an amazing new program called
GoVenture Entrepreneur


GoVenture Lemonade Stand simulation is an easy-to-use program that introduces you to the experience of running your own lemonade stand business. It’s the perfect first step for children or even adults who need to start with the basics of running a business. It also offers the opportunity to apply concepts in other subjects such as math, finance, career, or general life skills in a fun business setting.

Like a flight simulator for business, GoVenture Lemonade Stand puts you in the role of a budding entrepreneur selling lemonade. You must decide the price of your lemonade, the recipe (sweet and lemony is the best seller!), and manage your inventory (lemons, sugar, and cups) in order to maximize profits. And, don’t forget to keep an eye on the weather. It’s easy to use, visual, interactive, and fun!

Try your business skills on your own or against your friends and classmates. Gain practical experience so you have the confidence to explore starting and running your own business!

Play again and again — every new simulation you run is different!

GoVenture Lemonade Stand is ideal for youth and adults in self-directed or facilitated learning environments. It is also the perfect complement to any business course or curriculum - see below for what's included.
