of Students

The Institute of Applied Behavioral Science of the NTL states that most students retain 75% of what they learn by doing, compared to 5% from a lecture, or even 30% through demonstration only.

  • A hands-on experience empowers students to practice what they learn in a scenario that mirrors real life. By actively engaging in hands-on practice, students can transform theoretical knowledge into real-world skills, making learning both effective and enjoyable.

"Startup Wars as a simulation is a very useful experience that challenges students and makes the learning process more interesting and varied. It gives opportunities to students to think differently, make tough decisions, to understand business processes, and also change something (e.g., to be more confident).

The literature on using simulations in the learning process emphasizes the transformative impact of experiential learning on student outcomes.Moreover, there is a strong impact on students outcomes:

  • Improved retention
  • Enhanced critical thinking
  • Better decision-making skills
  • Increased motivation"

"This is how we all learn. We work at someone else’s startup. We work for a founder, watching, learning. It’s easier to develop your own thing if you’ve had a chance to watch someone else do it first."
