The search for Australia’s top young entrepreneurs, for Years 5 and 6 has begun. The national Club Kidpreneur Challenge was launched at this year’s EduTech Conference in Brisbane recently with students from Dakabin State School, Guardian Angels and Silkwood Independent School showcasing their micro business products to delegates at the exhibition.

Launched by Club Kidpreneur Foundation, the not-for-profit social enterprise devoted to inspiring entrepreneurship in primary children, the challenge invites teams of students to pitch their business idea via video to real-life entrepreneurs, build a business, sell products at a local market and donate profits to charity.

Dakabin State School kidpreneurs adopted a taster of the program when Minister for Innovation, Science and Digital Economy, Leeanne Enoch, joined Year 5 and 6 students to participate in the Advanced Queensland Budding Business Brains workshop, earlier this year.
