TORONTO, March 11, 2020 /CNW/ - Could a 10-year-old child create the next Instagram? Find out at the Children's Business Fair, which will showcase young entrepreneurs and their business ideas at Centennial College's Progress Campus on Friday, June 5 between 10 am and 2 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
The Children's Business Fair is a competition that challenges kids to create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy and court customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for setup, sales and interacting with customers – with no help from doting parents.
The fair is sponsored by the Acton Academy, ACCEL (Accelerator for Centennial Community Entrepreneurs and Leaders) and The Business School at Centennial College, with the generous support of donors and volunteers, all of whom believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.
"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 School of Business, one of the event sponsors.
Awards including "Most Business Potential," "Most Creative Idea" and "Most Impressive Presentation" will be presented to the young competitors in each of four age categories: 6-7, 8-10, 11-12 and 13-14 years.
Business Fair competitors are asked to register early. Our "kidpreneurs" and event sponsors will be available for interviews. For all the event details and to register: https://www.childrensbusinessfair.org/toronto-centennialcollege.
