Busine$tep is an educational game for children from 12 to 16 teaching the players about business processes, with a focus on social enterprises.

Based on an existing board game developed by a group of volunteers from Ukraine, this game is an easy-to-use tool of informal business education that can be used by school teachers and activists working with children.

Busine$tep is a combination of a board and a situational game: once a player sets a company, (s)he is challenged with a variety of cases simulating real business life, such as hiring new employees, filing taxes, making sales, etc. Next to several preset cases, the Busine$tep will allow game admins create new situations. Watch the video presentation of the game logic and some cases!

Due to its interactive and engaging nature, the game develops an interest in a child about entrepreneurship and builds basic business skills and understanding of the processes. Busine$tep promotes the idea of socially and ecologically responsible business and helps youngsters practice decision-making.
