A Virtual Enterprise is a simulated business that is set up and run by students to prepare them for working in a real business environment. With the guidance of a teacher ("consultant") and real-world business partners, the students determine the nature of their business, its products and services, its management and structure, and engage in the daily operations of running a business. Emphasis is placed on using current business software, communications, and the Internet for business transactions. California Virtual Enterprise serves a wide range of student abilities and interests. The simulation model is utilized to serve diverse student populations ranging from special education students in high school to community college students working on business degrees. The majority of students are 11th and 12th graders who are career ready.

Your support will ensure that my students are on an equal footing with students from other more affluent communities.

We need uniforms to participate in the California business Plan competition and with a little luck and support and hard work the national business plan competition in New York.

These programs teach entrepreneurship and practical skills that are essential to career readiness while promoting healthy competition to motivate students. The Virtual Enterprise Program follows in the footsteps of these other efforts, and has the added advantage of linking students in a global business network. This simulation takes the teacher outside of the traditional instructional paradigm and then places the students on the front lines of the business world.
