The program is open to all professors of business, entrepreneurship, art, music, and fashion.  If you are part from USASBE or C-E-O, you're welcome to join our Startup Simulation Tournament. If you are not a member, you can try Startup Wars too.

The Startup Wars platform was built to provide faculty a much needed method of allowing their students to
