KIDDOPRENEUR SUMMER 2017
This summer, more and more kids are sailing the challenging yet exciting seas of earning and saving up for the future. On July 22nd, Saturday, a fresh batch of Kiddo-preneurs will set up their own businesses at Glorietta 2 Palm Drive Activity Center for another installment of Kiddo-preneur.
Kids nowadays are getting more creative and innovative, and Kiddopreneur is the venue for just that. Running for five years now, Kiddopreneur advocates for the involvement of the Filipino youth in entrepreneurship. Kiddopreneur is a marketplace designed to give kids, ages 5 to 17, the full hands-on experience of starting a business—from interacting with customers to selling products in a safe and conducive mall environment.
What can Kiddopreneurs sell?
Participants may sell any product or service that caters to the family audience. They are encouraged to sell homegrown products, but packaged ones are good as well. However, participants may not sell clothing or shoes, or high-value goods, such as electronics, that exceed P5,000.
Kiddopreneurs may also venture into food, as long as it only involves light cooking via electric burners.
Are adults allowed in the venue?
Adults may assist the Kiddopreneurs, but booths must be managed by the participants. This helps them gain a more hands-on experience.
What do the Kiddopreneurs get to take home with them?
After the event, the Kiddopreneurs get to go home with a bag full of experiences, and their profit from their business! They also have the chance to take home awards such as Best Booth Design, Best Concept, Best Service, and Highest Sales!
In a past event, a group of kids selling boxes of homemade cookies worth P100/each was able to make a gross profit of P120,000 in a day.
How do Kiddopreneurs join?
Interested participants are required to fill in the application form, and Kiddopreneur’s kid-friendly business plan. Outstanding business ideas get to avail a booth at the venue.
