Fostering Creativity in Young Entrepreneurs!

Startup Weekend Youth Edition is specially designed for the next generation’s entrepreneurs, 5th–8th graders. If you’ve participated in a Startup Weekend in the past, this is something different, something special. We will create an atmosphere of exercises and experiences that will inspire creative ideas in young minds and help kids to learn how to move those ideas forward towards action, and in the process, collaborate with their peers.

Today’s youth are full of creative ideas for how to make lives and the world a better place. This will be a place for them to take those ideas and move them towards reality. This event will also help build confidence in creating and sharing ideas for those that tend to keep them inward. They will jump in with hands on activities that help them identify a challenge to solve, learn to understand the end customer or user, work effectively with others, and in the end, build something they are proud of.

Here’s how it works

Just like regular Startup Weekends, participants form teams. We will rotate the teams through different activity centers, each focusing on a different facet of ideation and execution. Each activity will emphasize a different aspect of creativity, idea formation, product building, and refining the story into a short presentation. There will be varying ways in which the children will be able to play and explore as well as challenge and express themselves.

Parents are invited to watch and be inspired by the entrepreneurial process at work as they are mentored by some of the best creative and business minds in Tampa Bay.
