Unlike any book, course, or seminar, GoVenture Accounting enables you to gain years of experience in minutes! Manage all the key aspects of your own virtual business price your products, buy inventory, advertise, review financial statements, hire employees, manage schedules, practise accounting, and more. Monitor your success by evaluating profitability, market share, and customer satisfaction.

Try your business 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!

GoVenture Accounting is a modified version of GoVenture Micro Business with an enhanced accounting module that allows you to make accounting entries manually.

Reporting Features
Several reports are automatically generated by the simulation:
  • Daily Summary
  • Customer Comments
  • Balance Sheet
  • Income Statement
  • Sales by Product

  • Cash Balance by day
  • Customers Served by day
  • Customer Satisfaction by day
  • Market Share by day
  • Startup and Working Capital

Every transaction made is recorded and displayed in the student's Performance Report.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does GoVenture include every aspect of accounting?
No. Including every aspect of accounting would require a much more complex business, making the simulation conceptually too difficult for most students. GoVenture is intended to provide hands-on experience and practice with the fundamental principles of accounting. Once the fundamentals are understood, it is much easier for an instructor to then provide students with additional accounting examples outside of the simulation, or by using the simulated business as a context.

Does a student have to know accounting before they play GoVenture?
It depends. If the manual accounting feature is turned off, then no a student can dive in and play right away. If the manual accounting feature is turned on, then the student will need a very basic understanding of double-entry accounting prior to playing.

Which product is right for me: GoVenture Micro Business or GoVenture Accounting?
If you would like the ability to make accounting entries manually, then you need GoVenture Accounting. If this feature will never be used, then GoVenture Micro Business may be a less expensive option.
