Do you have a mini Sir Alan Sugar in the making? Are your children always coming up with ideas on how they would like to go into business and make piles of money?
Yes? Then I have the perfect event for them… KidPreneur Festival at KidZania London
KidPreneur Festival at KidZania London
KidPreneur is a day-long festival on Saturday 13 October 2018, dedicated to celebrating young entrepreneurship and inspiring the next generation of innovators and business leaders. During the festival, four young entrepreneurs will takeover of the city.
Families can join us for Q&A sessions in the Theatre, where the talented young business leaders will share tips and tricks about their business and personal journey to success! Plus a series of hands-on workshops available for the children to immerse themselves into the day.
“We had an overwhelmingly positive response to KidPreneur in 2017, so we are delighted to be hosting the festival again this year. The entrepreneurs we are working with for 2018 are all hyper-talented and we have so much admiration for them and all they’ve achieved in their young careers. They are proof that great business thinking can be nurtured and developed at any age, and that’s really the message we’re trying to deliver with KidPreneur. ”

KidZania KidPreneur Workshops
Design your own trainers with Tommy Mallet – This arts and crafts based workshop will bring out the fashion designer in everyone! Tommy will be talking to kids about what inspires his designs, how to create something that’s unique and how they are brought to life. Children will then be tasked to create their very own Mallet trainer design of their own.
Create your own gaming world with Louise Leolin – Louise’s two-part workshop will kick off by introducing children to the wide range of jobs in the gaming industry; from coding and programming, to design, story writing and event accountancy. Part two will be more hands-on, with children being divided into groups to come up with their very own gaming worlds. Children will need to decide; who is your character? What’s the world? What’s their goal? A workshop set to challenge children’s creative thinking and their awareness of diversity and marketing products to a wide range of audiences.
Ideas ink: Pen to Paper with Jenk Oz – Got a cool business idea but no idea how to make it a reality? In this workshop, Jenk will be heading up a ‘head to paper’ session, encouraging children to come up with their most creative ideas and storyboard them onto paper. Jenk has previously spoken about these workshops at TED:X events and focuses on storyboarding ideas as the first step towards making business goals a reality. Head to paper is step one of the five-step process Jenk uses in his full ‘Ideas Ink’ workshops, which he runs with business leaders and innovators all over the country.
In addition, kids can check out the iCoolKid stand. The iCoolKid team will be on site all day, showcasing all the incredible content the site has to offer on iPads and answering any budding questions fans may have.
