Children’s Business Fair shows off young entrepreneurs

Child entrepreneurs from around the state showed off their ideas in Stoughton on Saturday.

The Children’s Business Fair gives kids the opportunity to launch their own startups by developing a brand, creating a product, building a marketing strategy and opening for customers.

All 34 entrepreneurs were under 15 years old.

In its third year, the fair added a training program to help the kids train for financial planning and business communication development.

“Being introverted, it’s kind of nice to get myself out there and learning how to run a business and be a leader,” said entrepreneur Noah. “People just kind of treat you older than you are. And, of course, you make money, so it’s a win-win.”
