How Does it Work?

Step 1: Set up Your Free Account


Setting up an account is an easy process. Simply schedule a 30 minute call with one of our instructional designers to set up a free account, and then you’ll be able to set up up your account and start meeting the needs of your organization.   

Accounts are always free for Educators and Administrators, and there are no long term contracts or commitments required to set up an account and explore the simulations.


Step 2: Choose Your Assignments


Our simulations are designed to provide maximum experiential student engagement while requiring minimal adjustment to your existing curriculum.

Most instructors incorporate 2-3 Startup Wars Simulations as homework or in-class assignments to their students and align the assignments around their existing class schedule.

The entire setup process takes roughly 5 minutes, and then your class will be configured and ready for the next semester.


Step 3: Choose Your Billing Type


You always have full control of how you wish to handle billing. We offer two primary methods to cover all needs:

Method #1 is “Direct To Student”, which allows you to simply include Startup Wars into your class as a courseware or textbook fee. When Startup Wars is included at your university this allows students to either pay directly, through the bookstore, or with financial aid.

Method #2 is “Provide Passes” which allows the department to cover the cost of the experiential learning programs on each student’s behalf.  Discount tables are built into the platform directly for some of our offers, so the more licenses the department purchases, the greater the discount.

Both methods come with technical & instructional design support for all license holders, which makes adoption easy at any organization!


And the Last Step...

Final Step - Invite Your Class!


We are proud to offer a “1 click” setup process for your students.  

Simply click “Copy Student Invitation Link” to copy the link to your clipboard, and then send that link to your class through your existing LMS or via email.

Once the students receive the link, they’ll be able to register their accounts and we handle everything else from there! The entire process is self-onboarding, so no additional instructor work is required. 

As students complete their assignments, instructors will receive all completion data directly to their instructor portal for easy grading, reflection, and evaluation. 


And That's It!

Startup Wars is an internationally recognized and award winning platform for entrepreneurship and business education.

"I believe that an immersive and engaging simulation platform like Startup Wars has the potential to teach students entrepreneurship skills and abilities that are simply not possible to obtain through normal teaching methods alone."

"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."
