The Singleton Foundation, the creators of the Venture Valley game and Million Stories, is dedicated to making financial literacy fun, engaging and accessible to all. It does this through its recently launched Venture Valley video game and its video storytelling site Million Stories.
Venture Valley – This fast-paced business-building strategy video game has 35 unique missions to play alone in a single-player campaign, or against friends and foes in competitive esports-style multiplayer play. Players of Venture Valley learn such principles as investments/dividends, fixed and variable expenses, loans, net vs gross income, and many, many more curriculum topics.
The Venture Valley game is an effective and entertaining vehicle for learning and retaining new information as students go through a series of progressive challenges, achievements and rewards. The game lets students assess their knowledge for themselves and gives them chances to try new variables and strategies to thoroughly master financial literacy concepts.
Million Stories – A first-of-its-kind digital entertainment channel with acclaimed content, Millions Stories runs the gamut of subject matter and flavor. Watching other people’s inspiring and sometimes tragic stories might inspire you, make you think, make you laugh or even make you cry. And yet, underneath it all, every one of Million Stories’ shows has a purpose. Its goal is to get people to care about their finances. Its bite -sized episodes include series like “Adulting with Richard Sherman,” “TipJar” and “Your Brain on Money,” among others, making the concept of personal finance fun and engaging.
Venture Valley and Million Stories are projects of the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship, a nonprofit public benefit corporation.
