An innovative, hands-on youth entrepreneurship program.

Over the course of each 14 week semester, students k-8 are inspired to bring their ideas to life with support from local community experts and “grown-up” entrepreneurs.

With a two-market approach, students are given the opportunity to adapt, iterate, and pivot based on outcomes from one market to the next. Start-Up Kids Club teaches using both qualitative AND quantitative assessment to encourage reflection and perception of both success and failure as valuable information. After students develop their idea—we don’t stop there. Offering continual programming, students have the chance to dive deeper into business acumen and explore growth opportunities.

While entrepreneurship is the vehicle we use for delivery, we see the BIG picture. We’re preparing students for life after the classroom. Crafting our program around an experience, our curriculum allows students to take ownership of their ideas—which helps not only connections but confidence. Our one-of-a-kind program provides students with meaningful opportunities to learn the power of not only possible but the power of themselves. By helping students understand how the choices they make affect the outcome, we’re creating a mindful generation that can change the world.
