Like Hitch Hiking, SimVenture is a journey of challenge and discovery. Decisions made by the user affect all the outcomes. Independent thinking, as opposed to dependent learning, is always encouraged and rewarded.
Developed over 4 years by experienced entrepreneurs, SimVenture provides users with an invaluable experience of running their own business in a risk-free environment. By using the software people gain a much deeper and accurate understanding of what it takes to be self employed and the kind of decisions that have to be made in order to be successful.
Since SimVenture can be used repeatedly at many different levels, users learn by doing as well as through trial and error. The simulation accelerates and embeds personalised learning and makes teaching business and entrepreneurship, richer, more sustainable and ultimately highly fulfilling.
SimVenture is used all over the world in schools, colleges, universities as well as many commercial organisations. For more information, visit: http://www.simventure.co.uk/
