Kidpreneur will be a kid-friendly place where kids aged 8-16 can get mentorship and hands-on training about entrepreneurship and the latest technology including web design, app development, robotics and more. The idea is to have Kidpreneur embedded in the local community where kids and parents feel comfortable and kids are invited to take live classes, online courses, professional coaching and the occasional game challenges with the staff. Kidpreneur plans to launch its pilot on September 21 with the help of Digital Roots in downtown Northville, Michigan. Thanh said “Northville is the ideal location for Kidpreneur because of its unique landscape and transparent border between its neighborhood and downtown business district. We want the kids to roll out of bed and be able to walk, run or bike to their Kidpreneur classes.” And Jay Wolcott, founder and CEO of Digital Roots, is proud to partner with the Kidpreneur program and hopes that his facility inspires regional youth to develop skills that will create a future of innovation.
Kidpreneur’s flagship class is self-titled where kids will learn how to bring their idea to life. The goal is to have the kids be excited about their idea, have fun building a business, give exciting presentations and get customers by the time they graduate from the course. If the kids do not have an idea but want to learn about entrepreneurship, then the instructor will work with them to find their passion. Other pilot classes will include web design, Android App development and LEGO® Mindstorms robotic programming. The classes will take place on Saturdays, lasting 90 minutes for 9 weeks, and the kid to instructor ratio is 4:1. The classes are taught by top practitioners with real-world experience and understand how to get the kids engaged. The graduation event is called Demo Day and will allow the young entrepreneurs to present their business and demonstrate their products and services.
