The Kidpreneur Klub is a registered trademark of Eduspace Limited. It is an innovative initiative run as an after-school club in primary schools. It introduces children aged 7-11 into the world of business through hands on skills sessions, workbooks and a fun atmosphere.
The Kidpreneur Klub embraces talents and skills that teachers in conformist classrooms might otherwise criticise. In an age where children need a level of resilience to cope with life’s challenges, entrepreneurship education has the likelihood to encourage a higher level of social and emotional wellbeing as well as teach personality traits and characteristic that children should be aiming to hone such as grit, tenacity, curiosity, problem solving and above all self-belief.
At the Kidpreneur Klub, we strongly believe that what makes for a great business idea is a creative mind and children are masters of creativity. We also believe that there can be tremendous value in being involved in entrepreneurial activities during a child’s formative years as it helps to develop skills not taught at home or even in the classroom.
During the sessions, children are taught the basics of building their websites and designing their posters/flyers using free online tools and software. We also prepare them for Children’s Business fairs and other fairs where they can showcase their products/services.
The programme is designed with a 10-module plan and runs for 10 weeks either before lunch, after lunch or after school depending on the school’s preference.
Contact us if you’d like us to run the club in your school. Holiday activities and Taster Sessions are also available. If we are not yet running the club at your school, please click the link below to access the course.
Mrs. Louisa DormerHead Teacher, Bushy Hill Junior School
Kidpreneur has taught our children so much about what is involved in running business. The children reported that Mrs. Akiode was kind and welcoming, always explaining things in a lot of detail. A number of children have been involved in the Children's Business Fair and used their knowledge for successful stalls!
Thank you so much for having put effort into making this exciting club for the kids. I hope you will be able to put it together for the next year.

Entrepreneurial education offers so many benefits for children from all backgrounds. It is a chance to develop and exercise skills that can’t be learnt easily in the classroom. We all want to see young people developing the skills to make them the entrepreneurs of the future.
