Jr. Entrepreneur Challenge

Learn about business by designing a product and starting your very own e-commerce store!

Course Overview

Over 10 weeks, each student will design a product and launch their very own online store. This course is designed to be fun, easy and inspiring, while helping students develop valuable skills. The students ultimately come away with a product, a website, a sales pitch and, in most cases, their first real sales!

Hey, I'm Mel!

Putting ideas into practice every class

Each session follows a 5-step cycle designed to expose students to knew ideas and immediately give them the opportunity to apply those ideas themselves after class.

Developing soft skills for their future

We provide structured and personalised ways to develop soft skills. Students will actively participate in real-world projects to practice and acquire the essential skills they need for the future.

Frequently asked questions

Will students have their own website?


You’ll have a page on a website for the whole program. This will save you the monthly cost of running a website until you sell enough products to set up a whole website of your own.




What if I can’t make it for one of the lessons?


You can join one of my other groups for the week at a time that you’re available.




Can I make a service business?


This class is focused on creating a product and an online store. If you want to start a business where you are paid to do things for other people, please get in touch and we'll consider developing a variation of the program to support it.
