Learn the Basics of
Entrepreneurship and Business
BizWorld, our flagship program, teaches children the basics of entrepreneurship, business, and finance in a hands-on manner. This project-based learning (PBL) program gives children the opportunity to learn first hand how to start and operate their own business. Working in teams of six, students start, fund, and run their own company in the friendship bracelet industry.
The decisions that the companies make are entirely student-driven. The students decide everything from what to name their company to how many products to make and how much to charge for them! The program culminates with the Sales Bazaar, an exciting opportunity for you to engage other students at your school, parents, administrators, and community members. During the Sales Bazaar, students sell their products (friendship bracelets) to their customers - don’t worry; no real money is involved! Students use the BizWorld monetary denomination, BizBucks.Throughout BizWorld, students have multiple opportunities to practice leadership skills and hone their math and communication skills.
