At Edinburgh Napier University we use SimVenture as an enjoyable and participative way for our computer science students. Students learn about business, while working in groups and developing their communication and presentation skills. We began ten years ago with SimVenture Classic and progressed to SimVenture Evolution. Our students cite both business simulation games as a fun way to learn and a highlight of their first-year experience.

I recently developed an online entrepreneurship course for university student artists at the Fountain School of Performing Arts. By using SimVenture Validate my students had the opportunity to explore key learning in a vibrant, interactive, and user-friendly way. The platform also provided students with essential experiential learning. My students really enjoy working with SimVenture Validate.

Students have made really good use of SimVenture Evolution and SimVenture Validate within our Engineering Department at the University of York. Both products have brought learning to life. Students have not only developed business and entrepreneurship skills but have become more curious and better able to work in teams.

SimVenture Evolution has been the best business simulation I have used to teach undergraduate students in our ‘foundations of business’ course. It is truly multi-disciplinary allowing for experiential learning to happen both individually and in teams. The learning outcome students reflected on was how they were able to bring the concepts taught in a textbook to life.

We have used SimVenture Validate in our yearly Entrepreneurship Competition and it has really enhanced the quality of our students’ submissions. The SimVenture team is very responsive and the tools that they have on offer are second to none.

My journey with SimVenture started after finding a demo CD copy of SimVenture Classic in an office drawer. It has been an absolute pleasure working with everyone at SimVenture, including the CEO, who is very hands on. The new online business simulator, SimVenture Evolution, has also opened a plethora of entrepreneurship educational possibilities that were not possible before.
