What is the DECA Garage? Think entrepreneurship incubator meets Kickstarter meets Shark Tank. This entrepreneurship opportunity is for DECA members, advisors, chapters (school-based enterprises), who are in the concept, start-up phase, or have an actual existing business. This is a chance to plan, perfect, and promote your business with personal mentorship from Shark Tank Winner and Entrepreneur of the Year Jason Lucash. “DECA-preneurs” will get in-depth training and coaching. You’ll showcase your business in the Downtown DECA expo hall. You’ll pitch conference attendees to lure their “DECA Dollars” virtual investments. The top two businesses will showdown in the final session of WRLC with entrepreneurship professors and executives.
