The Children’s Business Fair is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs ages 6-17 to explore business skills in a real-life environment.
There are many studies that suggest that the environment children grow up in has a great effect on the person they grow up into. We create an environment within our community that encourages and nurtures entrepreneurship. We hold a business fair for children twice a year. As in all of our daily activities, children are given opportunities for valuable and relevant experiences.
We remain supportive when and if they make mistakes along the way. It is a business fact that failure is only failure if you don’t learn from it. We have created opportunities for children, in which the risks are very minimal, to help build their confidence. Build on their successes and learn from their failures. It is one of our mottos to fail early, often and cheaply.
This one-day Business Fair is a culmination of ideas and hard work from great young minds. Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace. Experience young minds marketing, selling, counting money and feeling accomplished
