Observe 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.
We will host 22 booths at the 1st annual event in Common Street Spiritual Center on 13 Common St, February 19 from 3 pm – 6 pm.
This event is sponsored by Common Street Spiritual Center, Great Silk Road Craft, 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.
RULES & GUIDELINES FOR ENTREPRENEURS:
The entrepreneur is responsible for the setup, sales and interacting with the customer.
Age Categories: 5-8, 9-11, 12-14
Business Idea: We will take great care to limit the number of businesses in specific categories so we will not have too many similar business concepts.
Two judges per age category will walk around the event to judge the various businesses on the following categories
· Most Original Business Idea
· Highest Business Potential
· Best Presentation / Creativity
There will be a winner in each age group and category.
This event is designed to give children a taste of selling a product. Please let them have that
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.
