What is the Children’s Business Fair?
The Children’s Business Fair is the largest entrepreneurship event for kids in North America. This one-day business fair is a culmination of ideas and hard work from great young minds. Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our one-day marketplace. Experience young minds marketing, selling, counting money and feeling accomplished!
What is the process?
Young entrepreneurs first make an important decision: they hire themselves! They then bring their parents or guardians to attend an orientation event to learn more. At orientation, students learn about the simple application process and all other event details. Next, they'll apply, and then begin to launch their product or service. The children plan their business at every level: product, service, marketing, accounting, cost of goods, pricing, profit, etc. Through this process, children learn a sense of wonder, the importance of hard work, taking responsibility and gaining confidence in the next challenge.
