Meet Britain’s youngest entrepreneurs as KidPreneur returns to the capital this month
Following the sell-out success of its inaugural event in 2017, KidZania London is bringing KidPreneur back to the city along with several inspiring speakers to motivate the young minds of today.
Head to Westfield London on Saturday 13th October to be inspired by a panel of young entrepreneurs who have taken over the KidZania City! Families visiting KidZania during the KidPreneur festival can attend interactive Q&A sessions in the Theatre, where they’ll find an impressive panel of talented young business leaders. The speakers will share insights into their personal journey to success, as well as impart tips for kids on how to make their business dreams a reality. Following the Q&A session, children can take part in a series of interactive workshops which will help them develop their skills and interests, whether that be in fashion design or building video games.
“This festival for young entrepreneurs is about discovering and nurturing the next generation of London’s business talent. It’s so important to encourage youngsters to develop exciting, innovative ideas, which could have a big impact on how we live and work in the future.”
Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor of London for Business
