The Startup Studio to Headline Innovations & Entrepreneurship Program

DECA is excited to announce that The Startup Studio will host its “Learn to Start” experience at DECA’s Innovations and Entrepreneurship Conference this November 15-17, 2019, in Washington, D.C. In a time where market change is exponential, The Startup Studio passionately cares about bringing students, schools and organization partners throughout the world, innovative change to education. They do this through a trademarked, real-world platform based in entrepreneurship called “Learn to Start.” Participants will explore multiple processes of modeling a creative thought from ideation to execution, but with the focus always on the builder and never the methodology. All of this is achieved through the lens of the Learn to Start Model.

Interactive, hands-on modules include:

  • Value Proposition
  • Product Positioning
  • Building a Business Model
