Jr. Entrepreneur Challenge
Learn about business by designing a product and starting your very own e-commerce store!
10 - 13
Over one semester (18 sessions), each young entrepreneur will design a product and launch their very own online store. This course is designed to be fun and inspiring, while helping students develop confidence, and valuable skills in communication, strategic thinking and organisation.
The students will come away with a product they've designed, a website they manage, a compelling sales pitch and real sales! It's the ultimate business experience for pre-teens who have outgrown the lemonade stand.
