Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Kids ages 6-14 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 up to 40 youth start-up businesses on Saturday, July 15, 2023 from 3:00 - 5:00 pm at The Well, located at 210 James Garner Ave in Norman, OK.
2:00- Participant Check-In & Set-Up
3:00- Public Marketplace & Judging
4:45- Awards Ceremony
A fun Kickoff Event will also be held in June to offer inspiration and support to participants and parents alike!
Our youth are capable of far more than we can imagine. When we can inspire them through stories of entrepreneurs who have gone before, emphasize the journey of growth over the result itself, and give them the opportunity to learn through real-world, hands-on experiences, these young heroes will be inspired to discover their most precious gifts and a calling that will change the world.
This event is hosted by Evergreen Acton Academy and the generous support of our donors and volunteers, many listed below. 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.
