Startup simulator: entrepreneurship and management challenge
"US pilots started to hone their skills on flight simulators as early as in the 1970s. It proved to be cheaper and in some cases more effective than training sorties. Today, anyone can get the basics of driving by auto simulators or learn to build a company in Virtonomics business simulation game."

I tried Entrepreneur. Hands down, the most effective and useful business simulation for beginning entrepreneurs! I went through several different trainings, but only VE helped me to fight my fears of starting, saved me from a heap of fatal failures in my first startup, and helped me avoid investment losses. I managed to get real profit in half a year! Thank you!

I’ve been waging war in BizWar for over six months - it really is one hellova game. What you get here is a combo of a severe economic strategy and a completely fierce PvP arsenal - from industrial espionage to fierce mafia showdowns. In last two 2 months I overturned and seized markets from a dozen of tough oligarchs! A feeling words will not describe, gotta do it to understand :)

I’ve been playing Virtonomics for about 5 years now. As a fan of complex economy games, I constantly search and try simulations for my students, even though they appear on internet quite rarely. But no game managed to get at least close to Virtonomics in realism, variations and interesting gameplay. This game is constantly developing and improving, it is diverse and interesting as our life itself. Here you can find economy, entrepreneurship, company management, finances, marketing, decisions making, politics, market research, R&D, creativity, and a very cool community. Tycoon is a game for calm, thoughtful and intelligent people. Although we often have a lot of passion here :) Join now!

Dear entrepreneur,

we are sure you have already read a lot of useful and interesting books about business. You may have already completed several courses and training in which various business trainers shared their knowledge and advice on how to build your business. Summing it up, you already have some theoretical baggage. But there are several problems that are typical for almost ALL novice entrepreneurs and business people, and if left unsolved, all the available baggage of their theoretical knowledge will remain a useless abstraction:

  1. Lack of experience and practical skills to create and develop a business.
  2. Skills are acquired only in practical activities, experience is acquired only in the commission and understanding of your own mistakes.
  3. You can’t acquire experience and skills, since you are either starting or have recently started your first business.
  4. Learning from your own mistakes in your real business is VERY painful and expensive.

According to statistics:

  • 80% of new businesses are closed in the first 2 years of their existence.
  • 70% of the closing reasons are the managerial mistakes made by founders, thus fatal for business and usually caused by lack of experience and management skills.
  • Typical standard errors, most often leading to significant losses or loss of business. There are about 50.

How to avoid the mistakes done by others?  – How to avoid experimenting on your own business without substantial financial loss?  – And how to gain (at least) basic managerial and entrepreneurial skill set?

Oddly enough, aircraft pilots will answer this question best of all. Nobody will allow a pilot to the helm of an airliner and will not allow to risk the plane and the lives of passengers. Until, pilot “flies” hundreds of hours in a flight simulator. Only after having received good practical experience in managing a virtual airliner, the pilot gains access to the real plane. Hence, aviation has the lowest accident and death statistics, unlike business.

In order not to give you the opportunity to make an accident in your business, we have created for you a professional business simulation game “SIMFORMER. Way to Success”.
