This interactive business program helps users build and manage a lemonade stand, but the trial is too short. GoVenture Lemonade Stand's creative interface is very easy to operate. You quickly start by selecting a logo and a name for your business. With only a few clicks, users can easily set the selling price of the lemonade, choose a recipe, and oversee the inventory of lemons, sugar, and glasses. GoVenture Lemonade Stand also makes users react to weather changes that reduce demand for the product. At the end of every game the program displays a summary of sales. On the negative side, the trial can be played only for a very short five virtual days, which was barely 15 minutes for our testers. Overall, budding entrepreneurs may find GoVenture Lemonade Stand worthwhile.

GoVenture Lemonade Stand is a program that introduces you to the experience of running your own lemonade stand business. It s a first step for children or even adults who need to start with the basics of running a business. It also offers the opportunity to apply concepts in other subjects such as math, finance, career, or general life skills in a fun business setting. Like a flight simulator for business, GoVenture Lemonade Stand puts you in the role of budding entrepreneur selling lemonade. You must decide the price of your lemonade, the recipe (sweet and lemony is the best seller), and manage your inventory (lemons, sugar, and cups) in order to maximize profits.
