Students experience the power of asking good questions, the downfall of asking poor questions, and the agony of rejection.
Our intuitive insight builder teaches students to identify customer needs that drive new business opportunities.
Students get instant feedback on every action taken, whether they ask a leading question or misinterpret a customer need.
Students compete for the top spots on a real-time leaderboard.
Students can start playing without guidance from instructors with our self-guided tutorial.
Instructors get inside students’ heads with customizable reflection questions collected throughout the simulation.
Enter your course details, paste your students' emails, and then relax. We do the rest, with superior support.
Our analytics give you an instant snapshot of how well your students understand the process of customer discovery, and where to go next.
We've got documentation, phone, and email support. We'll make sure your simulation is set up right and technical support is available.
VentureBlocks is more than a simulation. It's a complete experience that prepares students for real-world customer discovery. After your students are done, they're ready to have customer interviews and find business opportunities that really appeal to potential customers.
Students start by playing our simulation, in class or for homework. They learn about rejection, customer interviews, insight building, and opportunity identification in a fun way. Forget about reading or case studies, students learn by doing.
We provide you with all the tools you need for a powerful debrief in class. You'll get a detailed teaching note, incredible analytics about your students' strengths and weaknesses, including student reflections recorded while playing the simulation.
You can optionally have students experience our role playing exercise that lets them practice everything they learned in the simulation, this time with real conversations to achieve mastery.
