What is KIDSTARTERS & CO?
KIDSTARTERS & CO is a fully interactive curriculum designed to teach the principals of entrepreneurship!
KIDSTARTERS & CO is designed and developed to inspire the next generation of kid entrepreneurs, through hands on learning experiences made to inspire, empower and equip kids to run their own business. Our unique approach takes everyday business planning and breaks it down into steps made to take kids from dreaming and scheming to doing.
We are breaking down barriers, busting through limitations and providing opportunity and education to any kid with a dream. Because we know; the next founder of a charity is dancing through your living room, the next Elon Musk is designing their own space colony out of legos, the next major clothing brand for kids with sensory issues is being designed by a kid trying to cut every uncomfortable seam out of their clothes… Because anything is possible.
Fun & Fundamentals
Our program helps propel kids to academic and life success by teaching fundamental and transferable skills in a whole new way.
Why Entrepreneurship And Why Now?
Entrepreneurial skills are some of the MOST transferable, yet we often wait until high school or after college to explore this exciting career area. The future of work will be vastly different and in order to be prepared we should explore the benefits of teaching entrepreneurial skills early on, even as young as 2nd grade.
The next wave of revolutionary thinkers are in your homes. KIDSTARTERS & Co. empowers students to learn differently. Teamwork is vital to all interactions and helps to build relationships, creative reasoning teaches the skills that will be needed for the jobs of the future, and the financial planning that is covered helps to strengthen math skills. Entrepreneurship brings all of those together and adds the vital element of fun that keep kids engaged in their learning. KIDSTARTERS & Co will equip, empower, and engage students to explore entrepreneurship as a career and growth option through classes, exclusive access to businesses, and behind the scenes insights.
Every unit has at least one focus area woven into its content. Kids will learn about teamwork, conflict resolution, public speaking, financial literacy, time management, and growth mindset along with business and entrepreneurial skills. While using basic principles, we give kids tangible takeaways that can be used across their learning environments and life. We give them a step-by-step process and guide to build a business plan. Our curriculum combines online videos, exclusive interviews with experts, and insights from small business owners, startup founders, and those that have created scalable thriving businesses. We give students the tools they need to think through their own business idea, with the benefit of the experiences shared by our experts
