Prototyping, marketing, branding, and more! Join us as we give students the tools and resources to think like entrepreneurs! KIDSTARTERS & Co is a curriculum designed to teach the principles of entrepreneurship through live interactive lessons (via Zoom) with actual entrepreneurs and fun videos and worksheets! Our unique approach takes elements of everyday business and breaks them down into steps made to take kids from idea to prototype to business.
During the 1 week course, we will focus on the important elements of coming up with a business idea, creating prototypes through design thinking, and exploring how we can brand and market each student’s unique idea!
They will then get to create a short pitch that they will share with their peers at the end of the week. Kids can learn from home and stay busy.
Our secret sauce is our fun, memorable, engaging, format that combines valuable, transferable, lifelong skills. Students will learn public speaking, problem solving, design thinking, and more! Bring your ideas! Class will meet 5 days a week, with one hour a day spent in a group Zoom call with their instructor, and worksheets and activities that they can do at home. Zoom call information will be emailed after registration.
