The purpose of our business fair is to introduce local kids to the vast and fulfilling world of entrepreneurism. Those that take part in this event will learn the process of planning, launching, and maintaining their own small business. Valuable lessons picked up along the way will prepare participants for success in business. This great opportunity to nurture an idea into reality will encourage business confidence and inspire the entrepreneurial spirit.

And they get to KEEP the money they make! The exciting experience gives them a tangible perspective of how money works and the true value of how to use it to make more money (rather than just spending it all!)
