Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Youth ages 6 to 17 years old will have the opportunity to launch their very own startup business and showcase it to their family, friends, and community!
They will 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 25 -30 booths at the 1st Inaugural Wilmington Children's Business Fair on May 4, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Applications are due by April 20, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. Applicants will be notified within 3 - 5 business days of submitting their application whether or not their application have been approved. The entrepreneurial investment fee for all approved kid-entrepreneurs is $25.00 per business and is non-refundable. This fee will include a t-shirt which can be worn at the event. Fees must be paid within three (3) business days.
Once your application is approved, you will be provided a link in which the $25 registration fee can be paid. Payment confirms your vendor table.
Each participant will receive a certificate of participation for being a part of the Wilmington Children's Business Fair.
This event is sponsored by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, S & J Concierge Services and the generous support of our donors and volunteers. 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.
Make sure you invite your family, friends, and community to come out to support your business at the fair. We never know which one of you budding business owners will be on Good Morning America!!!
