Since March 2017 till January 2019 youth from Latvian and Lithuania had a unique chance to get to know the real world behind entrepreneurship, and to gain knowledge of what kind of skills they need to have to start their own business.
Project Ready for Business/ReforB is a outcome of Interreg Latvia-Lithuania program 2014.-2020., that has been created by 6 partners – 3 from Latvia, 3 from Lithuania.
The aim of the game was to encourage young people to get interested into business world and to start to understand what it takes to start your own business.
In the final phase of project, an online simulation game will be created.
ICT Business Simulator is an IT platform that imitates a process of business start-up and development.
Users will be presented with a variety of situations typical for entrepreneurship, all of which will require an action from their side. In every situation, a user will have to select a decision he will make out of a number of options provided.
Depending on his or her decision, the user will face next situation. The user will step by step go through the simulated process of business development and observe the interrelation of his decisions with the consequences. Users will have an opportunity to go back and reach another scenario of business development.
Throughout the process, users will be provided with automated hints and comments aimed at explanation of their mistakes and achievements, identification of gaps in business perception, knowledge and skills, as well as enhancement of business-related knowledge.
