Introducing the

LTS Model

A Transformative Model for Human Development

Learn to Start has spent a decade engineering a new model of education capable of claiming the development of market-ready students.


Originally founded in the discipline of entrepreneurship, the Learn to Start model has been built over a decade of research and practice in direct partnership with students, markets, and educators throughout the world.

This model moves students away from a traditional system of academics to one capable of developing in them highly demanded, market-based skills using alignment and failure as the greatest tools in their arsenal.

Through this model, Learn to Start students claim, “I am market-ready.

Understanding the Learn to Start System of Assessment

Through the Learn to Start process, students develop the skills and mindset to be competitive, aligned, and productive inside 21st-century markets using our K-Market™ model of learning.


LTS Model empowers students to develop voice, choice, and independence in their formative years of education, and enter their field of interest with a portfolio that proves their value and the confidence to claim it. 

Using the LTS Model students leverage their passions and interests to answer the only three questions that matter when they enter the marketplace as producers, not just consumers.

Who are you?™

What can you do?™

How do you prove it?™
