This past weekend, both executive co-directors, Ashley and Cathy, competed in the Business Growth Plan written competitive event at the DECA California State Conference. The Business Growth Plan written competitive event required a fully fleshed out business plan that described the purpose, current operations, and future plans of REAL companies owned by competitors. We entered 4ai into the competition and won 1st place in the state, qualifying for international competition. We are overjoyed and grateful to receive this honor! ICDC, we are coming for you!

3/13/20 Update:

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ICDC was cancelled. However, we are extremely proud of all that we have accomplished in our final, senior year’s DECA competition season. It is a bittersweet ending to what we had anticipated to be our best competition season yet, hoping to showcase all the amazing work we had done with 4ai to an international audience. Participating in DECA the past 3 years has immensely improved our skills and expanded our knowledge as entrepreneurs. Without DECA, 4ai would not be the same. So, thank you DECA from the bottom of our hearts.
