GoVenture Personal Finance simulation is a realistic software simulation designed to help youth and adults learn about personal money management decisions in a fun and educational manner. Like a flight simulator for finance and life, GoVenture Personal Finance enables you to learn-by-doing. It’s easy to use, visual, interactive, and exciting!
Establish your life plan, enter your financial information — income, expenses, assets, liabilities — and then live your financial future: 5, 10, 20, or up to 50 years. Decide where to invest your money — savings account, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and more! Watch your investments grow and shrink based upon the economy, your investment decisions, and your personal spending habits. Will you be wealthy or bankrupt in the future? Can you afford to buy that new car or home today? Should you invest in a rental property or the stock market? When can you retire? Try GoVenture Personal Finance and find out!
Practice your money management skills on your own, or against your friends and classmates. Learn how financial markets operate. Gain practical experience so you have the knowledge and ability to plan your own financial future.
Unlike any book, course, or seminar, GoVenture Personal Finance enables you to gain years of finance and life experience in minutes! Play again and again — every new simulation you run is different!
GoVenture Personal Finance is ideal for youth and adults in self-directed or facilitated learning environments. GoVenture Personal Finance 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 Personal Finance within minutes, or over an extended period of time. Compare your results to those of other learners investing in the same economic conditions. Use a single computer, or play on multiple computers — over a local network or the Internet.
