The Learn to Start School Program is not a business course.
The Startup Studio is founded on the belief that traditional business courses are ineffective in assisting students in preparing for the 21st century world.

Learn to Start 3-Year Program
Year one of the program is a pass/fail course in which students learn how to tell their story and communicate their value as they develop their personal brands. Students learn the importance of relationships, understand the value of feedback, and experience failure as a part of the process, while identifying problems worth solving in the world and their communities.
Year two of the program is a pass/fail elective course in which students journey through the process of turning concepts into action guided by the LTS model. Students are challenged to seek out mentorship from our vast community of local, national, or global businesses as they continue to strengthen their core skills and gain expertise as they pursue their passions and interests.
Year three of the program is a pass/fail elective course in which students, empowered by years 1 and 2, learn, work, and grow within an autonomous system. Students pursue mentorship through their established networks to guide the process of testing their startup concepts against the LTS metrics of efficiency, sustainability, and profitability. Ultimately, students use entrepreneurship as a vehicle to empower themselves to act as free agents in the world.
