Observe the opportunity for children ages 5-17 to launch their very own business from simply doing things they love. Whether it be creating handmade crafts or delicious cookies come see how 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 be hosting many amazing kid-entrepreneurs at our event located at 1330 Lake Bradford Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32304 on Saturday, March 9th , 2019 from 12pm – 4pm.
Applications are due by February 28th, 2019 by 11:59pm. Applicants will be notified within 3-5 business days of submitting their application whether or not their application have been approved. There is a $15 registration fee for all approved kid-entrepreneurs. This fee includes a t-shirt which is to be worn at the event. We are also working with local small businesses and individuals as sponsors to assist with providing FREE Business Kits for each kid business. Business Kits will include a business manual/resource guide, a certificate of participation, coupons to local businesses,
There is no competition as we want to encourage the children to really grasp the concept of selling products/services for profit and communicating with customers over competing with peers. So we want our children to have fun without worrying about a contest situation.
This event is sponsored by Unique Wonders Junkanoo Cafe and Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors/sponsors and volunteers. We all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Walt Disney 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.
We hope to inspire and awaken creativity in the next future small business owners in our community.
