Who are they? Club Kidpreneur is an Australian social enterprise, founded by entrepreneurial trailblazers Creel and Tania Price in 2009.
Where are they? Based in Sydney but working with kids all over Australia.
What do they do? The Club Kidpreneur program aims to ignite the entrepreneurial mindset in Primary School students through a real-world, product-based learning experience that puts STEM into action. Students work in small teams to build a micro-business, sell hand-made products at market, and donate their profits to social causes. They can then choose to pitch their ideas to entrepreneurs, Dragon’s Den -style, in the annual national competition Kidpreneur Challenge.
Why do we like them? As Whitney Houston once said, “I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way…” As parents, this is a sentiment very close to Team Iridescent’s heart and this is exactly what Club Kidpreneur is trying to do.
According to Co-Founder and CEO Creel Price “Some futurists are predicting that children of today will have 40 different jobs across 10 career paths in their working lives. In 20 years, the average corporate job we know today will not exist.”
“The life skills that would apply to any profession in the future include imagination; initiative; resourcefulness; resilience and interpersonal skills i.e. team work, leadership and communication.”
“It’s important we arm our children with skills today to meet the demands of tomorrow and one of the best ways we can do that is by teaching them entrepreneurship,”
But Club Kidpreneur not only focuses on supporting kids to be successful in the future, but enables them to discover what they’re capable of and the very real difference they can make now: over the past seven years Club Kidpreneur has seen 10,000 kidpreneurs raise over $350,000 for worthy causes through starting their own micro-businesses. Amazing!
“With our world changing at an unprecedented pace the Entreprenaissance is the wave of entrepreneurial spirit that will harness this change for the good of mankind.” - Creel Price.
