STOUGHTON, Wis. - 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."
