About

GoVenture Investment simulation is a realistic software simulation designed to help youth and adults learn about personal investment decisions in a fun and educational manner. Like a flight simulator for finance and life, GoVenture Investment enables you to learn by doing without risking your investment dollars. It’s easy to use, visual, interactive, and exciting!

Unlike any book, course, Investment enables you to gain years of investment experience in minutes — not weeks or months!

Decide where to invest your money — stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or precious metals. Buy and sell in virtual markets and watch your investments grow and shrink based upon the economy, and your investment decisions. Practice your investment skills on your own, against your friends and classmates, or challenge the computerized investors in the simulation. Learn how the financial markets operate. Gain practical experience so you have the confidence to explore real investment markets.

More than just buying and selling from an investment account, GoVenture Investment allows you to research investments, follow economic trends, track performance, predict how news and rumors will affect prices, and survive the unpredictability of the markets and economy. Play again and again — every new simulation you run is different!

GoVenture Investment is ideal for youth and adults in self-directed or facilitated learning environments. GoVenture Investment is also the perfect complement to any finance, business, economics, math, career, or family and consumer sciences course. See below for what's included.

Plus, run an entire session of GoVenture Investment within minutes, or over an extended period of time. Compete against others and against the computer. Use a single computer, or play on multiple computers — over a local network or the Internet.
