StartUp used by schools thanks to "Confindustria"
Moreno Michelazzo - Confindustria VicenzaIt's seven years I'm in Confindustria working on training. When I met StartUp, immediately proposed to the schools to use it. Kids can experiment the problems of running a business while learning the principles. I defined it a game but I see it's a training method suitable for any person who works on a public or private. StartUp gives the opportunity to understand the mechanisms that generate the income and expenses of an activity.
Preside Istituto CeccatoHo visto i ragazzi assolutamente entusiasti. StartUp è stato un'occasione di confronto e sana competizione. La mia aspirazione è che tutte le lezioni siano così. Vi ringrazio per l’esperienza che è stata interessante per gli studenti ma anche per noi docenti, che abbiamo ridefinito lo stile delle lezioni in aula.
