In this session Chris Cannon will demonstrate how to use a brand new online resource, Start It Up!, to help teach a variety of topics related to entrepreneurship. Start It Up! is an online startup simulator that takes the player through two years of starting a new company navigating funding, target markets, customer service, and unexpected events.
Participants in this workshop will learn tips for using Start It Up! as a classroom tool and get a chance to experience some of the lessons associated with the game. Three Econiful members will win a $50 gift card.
