At Kidzfair, our mission is to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit in young minds, fostering their skills to shape the future of business.
We provide a vibrant platform for aspiring young entrepreneurs to learn, grow, and showcase their ideas. Our event is tailored to nurture the business acumen in children and teenagers by guiding them through the essentials of entrepreneurship
KidzFair, Great Dunmow 2022
My child has a business idea,
how can they participate?
A one-day event that provides young entrepreneurs (7-17) the opportunity to turn their idea into a real business, earn their own money, get prizes and recognition from our judging panel, and more importantly learn through experience.
There is a fee of £15 from all accepted businesses run by children 7-17 years old. The stalls are limited, and this is to reserve their spot at the fair.
The young entrepreneurs will learn:
how to create a simple business plan and what are cost, revenue and profit;
the basics of branding - from coming up with a name to presenting the products;
how to raise funds if required for the business;
how to spread the word about the new business and the event;
how to sell and speak to customers.
Young entrepreneurs launching their own products will be prioritised over businesses selling second-hand items or reselling bought stock.
Businesses who add value to second-hand items – for example, customising second-hand clothes - will be considered as new products.
Will there be prizes?
We have prizes in the following categories: Best Product, Best Stall, Best Customer Service and a special award for the Most Represented School. The prizes in each category will be awarded at the end of the fair. All approved entries will be automatically entered into the competition.
Judges will ask the entrepreneurs questions about the business, such as how they came up with product prices and how they promoted their products. Judges will also evaluate how much of the business reflects their own work (versus parents’).
How to become a sponsors?
We are seeking corporate sponsorship to support children’s business fair and to give every young entrepreneur the incredible opportunity of kickstarting their own businesses.
Sponsors can expect direct contact with parents and customers and help provide resources for young entrepreneurs.
Please see our sponsors from our event in Foakes Hall, Great Dunmow, which took place on 11th June 2022.
