Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Children develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace. They will run their booths on their own, making change, handling customer service, sales and answering questions about their business. This allows them to develop necessary skills needed throughout their personal and professional lives.
We will host this exciting event in Northeast Washington, D.C. (Brookland/Catholic University area) on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Bill Gates 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.
"Today's youth are tomorrow's business innovators and leaders. The Children's Business Fair gives students the opportunity to spread their entrepreneurial wings and get a head start on promising business careers," said Jeff Sandefer, Founder of the Acton Children's Business Fair and Acton School of Business.
