2018 Naples Children's Business Fair
Ignite your child's entrepreneurial passions.
The Children’s Business Fair will offer the opportunity for young entrepreneurs, ages 6-17, to showcase and sell their product or service to the public. Working with the Chamber, children will learn free-market principles, how the workforce drives the local economy and relish in the rewards of their hard work. The Naples Chamber and Leadership Collier Foundation will work with participants post-event to help continue their professional growth, connect them with business leaders and provide support on their entrepreneurial journey. Proceeds benefit the Leadership Collier Foundation in support of youth development and work-based learning programs for local students.

Interested in becoming a sponsor?
Children’s Business Fairs grant kids the opportunity to create a product, business model, marketing strategy and then sell that product to the public in a safe environment. The Acton Children’s Business Fairmodel was originally developed by the Acton Academy Schools and Acton MBA Program, organizations which believe in the power of work and entrepreneurship to improve self esteem and strong communities. After several successful fairs in Texas, they chose to give the opportunity to others across the country. Now Acton Children’s Business Fairs are active or planned in 25 different cities across the country (and one in Guatemala). Click here to learn more about the Children's Business Fair.
