The Approach

One-Day Marketplace:

At the Children’s Business Fair, children create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy and then open for customers at a one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the set-up, customer interaction and sales. The possibilities are limited only to what children can create!

Prizes are given to the best business by age and category. We love the practical approach of the fair and all of the learning opportunities it gives these budding entrepreneurs. This was a perfect opportunity for the Singal Foundation to support these young and promising entrepreneurs.

Coaching & Training:

The Singal Foundation will partner with the Children’s Business Fair in September, 2019 and will host training workshops with these young entrepreneurs before the big event. The training will include topics like sales, marketing, booth presentation, product packaging, pricing, sales pitch strategy and much more. A panel of seasoned entrepreneurs and past participants will share their experience and insights with these young entrepreneurs.
