DECA Competition: Startup Business Plan

View All Blog Articles

The DECA Start-Up Business Plan involves the development of a proposal to form a business.  Every startup business starts with a business plan. The Startup Business Plan allows students to not only learn about how to write a business plan, but also organize their thoughts on how to start a new business.  The plan includes a written paper (up to 11 pages), an oral presentation, and can only have 1 participant. The paper includes an executive summary, the top problems, your product/service, customer segments, unique value proposition, the product/service features, channels of distribution, revenue streams, cost structure, key metrics, competitive advantage, and a conclusion.  The DECA Start-Up Business plan is similar to the DECA Independent Business Plan, but instead of involving the entire chapter, this event is for an individual who wants to test the waters of entrepreneurship. 

Print Fundraising’s learn & earn fundraising program is perfect to use as a DECA Start-Up Business Plan.  A new business must be organized and have a plan to be successful. That is why we have taken the time to write detailed content on how to start, manage, and market a new business and even cover how to write a successful business plan.  By using our available tools, a student can easily create a comprehensive business plan around our learn & earn fundraising opportunity. While we have made our fundraising opportunity as turn-key as possible, a student will be most successful if they take the time to create a detailed business plan on how to start, manage, and market a new decoration business. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part of using our fundraising program as a DECA Start-Up Business Plan is not only can a student use it in event competition, but he or she will benefit from a financial standpoint as well.  This is what makes our fundraising opportunity so great- instead of just writing a business plan to use in competition, a student can benefit for the next several years by starting and growing a successful decoration business.  So if there is a student in your chapter who is not sure what event/project they want to compete in and has a future in entrepreneurship, consider having them lead your chapter to the ICDC using our one of a kind fundraising opportunity as a DECA Start-Up Business Plan.
