December 2020 High School Newsletter

FOUNDER’S NOTE

Hi, everyone!

This will probably be the last newsletter you see in 2020 from me, so I’m writing more of a year-in-review newsletter this time.

At Stukent we’ve done the very best we can to make the most of what we’ve been given. We feel very blessed to be able to help educators like you continue to fight the good fight!

Here are just a few of the things we’ve done this year to try to help:
– Held ProfCon for free and had over 1600 attendees
– Hosted three free Stukent Digital Summits
– Added shopping ads to our Mimic Pro simulation
– The Mimic Personal Finance simulation is now available to over 80 percent of all high school students in Idaho state
– Kicked off our new certifications with a newly formed advisory board of industry experts

We launched these new products:

  1. Mimic Analytics simulation
  2. Mimic Marketing Principles simulation
  3. “Advertising: Selling in Today’s World” e-textbook
  4. “Digital Marketing Analytics” e-textbook
  5. “Business Analytics” e-textbook
  6. “Public Relations” e-textbook
  7. PR simulation coming soon

Stay tuned for a few more product launches in January.

Stukent made the Inc. 5000 list again at number 1067 this year, and we hit the 100+ employees milestone.

Let’s finish this crazy year strong, and make sure we do everything we can to make 2021 our best yet!
