Small Business simulation is a realistic business simulation that recreates the day-to-day experiences involved in starting and running a small business. Like a flight simulator for business, Small Business puts you in the role of founder and CEO of your own virtual business, while engaging you in realistic situations and problems. It’s easy to use, visual, interactive, and exciting!
Unlike any book, course, or seminar, Small Business enables you to gain years of experience in minutes! Manage all aspects of your own virtual business — price your products, order inventory, conduct sales and marketing initiatives, review financial statements, hire and fire employees, manage schedules, and more. Monitor your success by evaluating profitability, market share, customer satisfaction, employee morale, personal goals, and more!
Try your business management skills on your own, against your friends and classmates, or compete with the computerized businesses in the simulation. Gain practical experience so you have the confidence to explore starting and running your own small business! Play again and again — every new simulation you run is different!
Small Business 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.
Plus, run an entire session of Small Business within minutes, or over an extended period of time. Compete against others head-to-head (if using Version 1, but not with Version 2). Use a single computer, or play on multiple computers — over a local network or the Internet.
