This programme uses characters, stories, presentations, interactive tools and play to help kids understand money and business, and develop basic financial literacy, innovation, self-confidence and interpersonal skills. This programme is conducted in a small group setting to ensure that maximum creativity is encouraged and that the intended knowledge and experience to spark the entrepreneurial spirit is fostered.
Through fun games and play the Minipreneurs will be guided through the entrepreneurial cycle of staring their own business. Knowledge gained is practically applied to the micro – enterprise learners develop within the process. Participants learn what a business is; they choose on a product to make and sell; decide on a name and design a logo for their business; do “market research”; implement a simple “production line” for themselves; work out the costing of products and determine selling prices; design advertisement material and learn how to sell their products at a Market Day.
