Kid Entrepreneur Programs

Watch your child learn, imagine & take action as they work to launch their first business! This is an experience they will look back on for years to come!           10 Week Entrepreneur Action Programs available for ages 7-15 years of age.

Exponential Positive Impact

Working with local partners & businesses, Build a Biz Kids is uniting a community of dedicated & passionate people who believe that children can drive incredible change for their families, communities & the world. 

Everyday we hear of kids who hear of those in need and want to take immediate action to help. As adults, it is our job to support them, guide them, and deliver the tangible skills required to make that change.

The skills & experience they develop will last their lifetime, but the good initiatives they take on will last for many more. 

Join Our Mission and be a part of the next generation of leaders. 

Kids Market Day Expo!

Check out our KidPreneur Graduates as they launched their businesses for the first time! Our students are from all kids of incredible backgrounds, each who bring a different perspective and creativity to their execution. 

Financial Literacy at 7-15 years

“I wish I learned that when I was young!” Don’t we all! Financial understanding and money management, even today, isn’t something that they teach us in school. Entrepreneurship is an opportunity to help kids understand what things cost, what value is, and that earning money takes effort and commitment. With the help of Vancity, we also talk about what they can do with their profits after the program. Save it, Spend it, Reinvest it or Donate it!

Learning to Handle "No"

Wouldn’t it be great if we could hear “Yes!” to everything we wanted? Unfortunately, that’s not how much of the world work. The next best thing is not letting “No” stop you and to see how it can be a great thing! Knowledge is power! Hearing “No” could mean that we need to question our approach, pricing, value of our product or service, and look for ways to improve.

A Habit of Action

We all want our children to have imagination and be creative, but that’s just the first step. We need to teach them the habit of taking action on those ideas as well. Experimentation, trial and error and persistence is the fastest way to finding their passion and creating a fulfilling life! Our programs don’t just teach the theory of entrepreneurship; we help them take immediate action while promoting the enjoyment of the process, not just the end result.

Kids Talking to Strangers

Yes! In a safe environment, our students are able to interact with strangers while promoting their business. This opportunity to connect with adults & kids is invaluable in developing their communication & confidence. They are excited to make money, but understand quickly that they need customer service, a compelling sales pitch, and persistent effort before someone will pay for their product.

Tech Free Zone

That’s right! Please keep their iPad’s and phones as home. Yes, technology can absolutely accelerate the growth of a business but first we need to learn the basics. They need to understand WHY they are doing what they are doing. Plus, all that technology like Photoshop or website building can take a lot of time to master. We don’t want them to get frustrated before they even begin! Let’s start with launching small and then we can grow from there.

What Parents Are Saying…

I’m Amazed At The Display Of Their True Potential

“I like how you kept reminding us to let the kids take charge & go with their ideas. It’s honestly not easy to let go (he’s only 7), but I’m so amazed at the display of their true potential when we let them fly with their ideas. So thank YOU and good Job to all of you in your team!”

The Skills Learned Go Beyond Selling a Product

“A highly recommended program! The skills learned go beyond selling a product – they apply for life”

He Came Back for Another Program!

“My child loved the program! It was fabulous to see his self confidence flourish. Thank you!”

We Will Be Recommending This to Everybody With Kids!

“The Kids were given the freedom to figure things out on their own with the support to make their products a success! We will be recommending this program to everybody with kids!! Thank You!”

Brings a Tear To The Eye

“I asked him if he was hungry after the market day and wanted Freshii…he said no, he doesn’t want to spend his “hard earned money”, and I shouldn’t spend mine either…he would find food at home. Brings a tear to the eye, lol”

This Program is Exactly What Kids Need

“Get them off the electronics and get them ready for the “real world”. It allows them to be creative and gain confidence. Amazing program with amazing people!”

He Said It Was The Best Camp This Summer!

“Dillon really enjoyed the camp and learnt a lot. He said it was the best camp this summer! This was definitely worth the drive. Farah and Sophie did a great job. We will look out for future camps for sure!”

I Absolutely Recommend This Program!

“He has an absolute interest in selling stuff. He’s always looking to do things like lemonade stands and create new ideas to make some money. Designing and going through the prototypes and trying to make it the best it can be was the most exciting part of the program.”

This is a Great Learning Experience for Kids!

“I wanted him to gain experience in doing business and selling products. His excitement about creating his own product has been exciting!”

This Experience Has Been Really Cool!

“It’s been really cool watching [Nicola] take a small concept and grow it into something that’s her own. This is a super opportunity for kids of any age.”

He’s Excited About His Business!

“Thank you so much for running the kidpreneur program & organizing this amazing market event! This was invaluable experience for him & I believe it’ll help him in his future & will have only positive impact on him. “

He Won’t Miss a Class!

“It’s the one activity out of all of his activities he wouldn’t miss for the world. He’d be sick as a dog and say, ‘no, I have to go to [Build a] Biz Kids’. I absolutely recommend this to any parent.”

She has a Million Ideas!

“She begged me and begged me and begged me to put her in the program. She needs my help, she knows she needs my help but she also wants it to be her creation and her business.”

He’s Still Building His Business!

“Everyday he would come home from class excited to share what he learned. This is sort of a life skill thing that you don’t learn in school and it’s good to learn at a young age.”

100% Recommend This Program!

“As the [Market] Day comes closer, I tell you, we were bouncing off the walls because of the excitement to just come and talk to people in person and make some money.”

Practicing Decision Making

Practicing Decision Making

Did you know that Decision Making is a Skill? It falls under Soft Skills but it is anything but soft, it’s critical!
When kids are given the space to make decisions, and do so, it’s important that we use that moment to credit them with that. Not the topic or actual choice that they made, but the action of choosing, making a decision, is one we want to encourage.
For my son, I want to encourage him to try new things. New food, new clothes, hair styles, friend, sports, and so on. You can see that moment in your kids eyes when

Are You Winning or Losing? Does It Matter?

Are You Winning or Losing? Does It Matter?

Imagine your child won a Nobel Prize for giving one big idea to the world, through taking action. Do you believe that this is possible? Do they have it in them to be exceptional?

I really hope you said yes, because it’s true. No matter what intellectual or physical or other limitation they may have, giving the world a great idea and taking action on it is in all of our power and control, but it can…
