11:45 am - 1:30 pm
Join NCER for our next luncheon on Friday, March 8th at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary at 11:45am for our monthly luncheon. Virtual Enterprise International (VEI) will present business plans to prepare for their upcoming national competition.
This kind of encouragement for young, aspiring entrepreneurs is very much in keeping with NCER’s Mission and an excellent opportunity to provide valuable feedback and support to a special group of students representing North Carolina at the national level. A copy of the business plans will be included for attendees to preview, and there will be time for Q&A following their presentation. Your participation and tough questions will hone their skills in the presentation and defense of their business plan. All NCER Members are urged to attend.
What is Virtual Enterprise International (VEI)?
VEI is an in-school, live, global business simulation that offers students a competitive edge through project-based, collaborative learning in entrepreneurship, global business planning, problem solving, communication, personal finance and technology. VEI replicates all the functions of real businesses in both structure and practice. Students create and manage their virtual businesses from product development, production and distribution to marketing, sales, human resources, accounting and finance, and web design.
VEI firms engage in trade with over 5,000 other Virtual Enterprise firms across the nation and worldwide. Mirroring the real world, VEI firms offer diverse products and services – from banking, insurance, and technology to publishing, advertising, app creation, tourism, and fashion. All VEI transactions are facilitated through a virtual banking system that connects all of the firms. Participating students are business savvy and fiercely competitive.
3T Centra was founded in 2017 as a gag gift company. In 2018, the company decided to start a new and exciting endeavor, Aura. Aura’s mission is to naturally restore and renew their customers’ confidence. The company plans to achieve this goal with their all natural line of products including face washes, scrubs, bath bombs, and even shaving soap ensuring there is something for both men and women.
Adrenaline Rush was formed in early 2010, and has changed many times. This year Adrenaline Rush decided to become a digital magazine publishing company. Adrenaline Rush noticed that there was a major flaw in the VE world with regards to advertising. This is why we decided to pursue the digital media world, by having two sources of revenue coming from not only subscriptions, but also selling advertisements toother VE businesses as well.
