What are people saying?

"I had been searching for a computer simulation that incorporated the entrepreneurial process for some time now. I had looked at several but they were more small business oriented, and did not use entrepreneurship concepts. When I became aware of Traction I was very excited, and used it in the classroom for the first time last semester, with three different classes. Students became more engaged and motivated to work harder, and as a result of the game have a deeper understanding of what is involved in starting a new venture."
