Find out at the Bradenton Village Children’s Business Fair, show casing children’s entrepreneurial genius! Come celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr! On January 14, 2023 from 12pm – 3pm, the first (1st) annual Bradenton Village Children’s Business Fair will host 25+ young entrepreneurs at Bradenton Village. This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Children create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers, and any parent seen selling to the customer or promoting the child’s product will result in disqualification from the competition. Bizness Now!, Recess Education, Billionaire Babies, Acton Academy, Bradenton Village, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers, who all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation, sponsor this event.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous, like Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey, or one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these entrepreneurs 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 School of Business, one of the sponsors of the fair. Cash prizes of $50 will be awarded in each of the four age groups (6-8, 9-10, 11-13, and 14- 16) for the “Most Original Business Idea” and “Best Presentation/Creativity”. Both adult sponsors and shockingly articulate children are available for interviews on camera or off. For more information, please contact JoOni Jones at 941-580-8855 or email@example.com
