The Business of Doing Good is a social entrepreneur day program for 10 to 14-year-olds – we help kids put their passion into action!
Our goal is to help your child identify one of many passions they may have and instill the determination and skills to achieve their goals.
Our program is highly individualized to meet your child’s interest and skill set. We provide the exposure and tools, and every participant chooses their own topic to focus on. In just five days, kids will learn the fundamentals of business and social impact, meet prominent entrepreneurs and create their own business plans.
- Idea Generation: Participants explore needs in their community and their passion areas to determine an idea to work on.
- Market Analysis: Participants determine a broader market perspective of their project and identify a problem to be solved from a customer/societal point of view.
- Financial Analysis: Participants build an understanding of costs and income, and how to ensure they build a sustainable and profitable revenue model.
- Pitching: Participants learn authentic storytelling strategies to describe their projects.
- Taking Action: Participants create a specific plan to put their passion into action.
