Observe (and participate in!) the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace. Visit our Resources
page for ideas on how to get started.
We will host 20-40 booths at our 1st annual event this spring! We are grateful for an amazing location in the Durham Innovation District--their lawn just up the hill from the Farmer's Market will be our marketplace for the day!
This event is sponsored by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers. We all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey or they are one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs and serve their communities.
