Build! Invest! Win! We are so excited to announce the launch of the PC and mobile (iOS and Android) video game, Venture Valley. Now available and FREE to download and play, this fast-paced business strategy game gives aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to be their own boss. 

More information can be found on the Venture Valley website, as well as Twitter, Facebook, Discord , Instagram, YouTube and Twitch.

A project of the Singleton Foundation, Venture Valley takes budding entrepreneurs on a business-growing journey through 35 unique missions in either a single player campaign, or pits them against friends and foes in competitive esports-style multiplayer play. 
Throughout the Valley, players experience the highs and lows of being their own boss, and need to keep in mind that along with success comes rivals. Competition can be kept in check by strategically creating a custom deck of “boost” and “adversity” cards that can be slammed down during gameplay to leave opponents scrambling, or used to bolster your own enterprise.

Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization (CEO) is a national organization with chapters at over 400 universities and colleges. The purpose of our chapter at UNCG is to inform, support and inspire students and our university community to be more entrepreneurial and start businesses. The UNCG CEO Club is sponsored by the Business Administration Department in the Bryan School of Business and Economics.

Entrepreneurship at colleges and universities is a rapidly growing field. UNCG is a global leader in Entrepreneurship, winning the U.S. Association for Small Business & Entrepreneurship Outstanding Emerging Entrepreneurship Award for the academic Entrepreneurship Cross-Disciplinary Program in 2012 and the Global Consortium of Entrepreneurship Centers Award for Excellence in Entrepreneurship across the Curriculum in 2011.

With the award-winning academic entrepreneurship program and the state of the U.S. economy, it is more important than ever to give students the opportunities entrepreneurship offers. The CEO Club gives students the chance to network not only with their student peers, but with successful entrepreneurs in the business world and promote entrepreneurship at all levels and in all environments.
