THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE NORTHEAST OHIO YOUTH ENTREPRENEUR MARKETPLACE (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE AVON LAKE CHILDREN'S BUSINESS FAIR).
We are happily hard at work finalizing the details of our 3rd Annual event because we think it's important to provide an opportunity for young people to experience business ownership.
We also think Kidpreneurs are amazing people. They may be young but they are creative, visionary, talented, and very courageous! We are truly inspired by ALL of the young business owners.
This marketplace showcases kids' SELF-MADE products or services. They are responsible for developing a product, a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace.
Last July, we successfully hosted 36 booths at the 2nd Annual event in Avon Lake. This year, we can offer more booth spaces in a larger venue at the Spitzer Conference Center at the Lorain County Community College in Elyria.
Sign up early so that you can carefully plan and prepare your business for success!
Whether or not kids continue their journey toward becoming a business owner as an adult is not important. Kids who stretch out of their comfort zones will develop resilience, self-reliance, perseverance, and valuable skills to accomplish even bigger goals.
Even if the experience does not go as planned, there are valuable lessons learned. Experiencing business ownership and all that it involves has much more of an impact than just reading about it in a book.
We believe the best time to start a business is anytime. An even better time to start a business is when you're YOUNG!
Join in the excitement of running your own business for a one-day marketplace! Your business could very well continue beyond this event and we sure hope that it does!
We look forward to seeing you and your business take flight!
This event is sponsored in part by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers, and the Lorain County Community College.
