Computer Simulation in Ashland University’s Entrepreneurship Program
GoVenture is an entrepreneurship simulation which is a highly visual and realistic simulation that recreates the day-to-day experiences involved in starting and managing a small business. GoVenture Entrepreneurship places the student in the role of founder and CEO of your own virtual business, which depicts realistic situations and problems.
Students will manage all aspects of their own virtual business – pricing, ordering inventory, conduct advertising initiatives, review financial statements, write checks, hire/fire employees, and manage schedules. Students monitor their success by evaluating profitability, customer satisfaction, and employee morale.
