It is a great pleasure to be working with Masters Students in the Creative Industries at Southampton Solent University. The students are creative entrepreneurs who have or are going to set up their own creative enterprise or work as a freelancer.

To support these savvy entrepreneurs I am teaching them about how to think strategically and how to operate a start-up business using our simulation game called SimVenture Evolution. The learning experience is very hands-on and interactive and is a very different way of teaching #business an #employability skills.

SimVenture Evolution has a number of #simulations to play. At Southampton Solent University the students are learning the about the ups and downs of starting a business from scratch along with all the areas of a business that need to be considered to run an efficient business as a business owner or freelancer in the creative industries.

Together we’re looking at strategic thinking, marketing operations, production, R & D and all things to do with Finance. I’m looking forward to the next few weeks to see how everyone gets on.
