Giving Young Entrepreneurs The Chance To Showcase Business Ideas.

Small Niche business ideas are already making waves but we mustn’t forget the entrepreneurial skills of some of the leading Children coming forward into various markets with their business ideas.  The annual Junior Entrepreneur programme (JEP) has brought young entrepreneurs to a National Platform for the first time in the All Ireland Showcase Day.
 
The Junior Entrepreneur Programme started in 2010 and has gone on to inspire 50000 young entrepreneurs ages 11 and 12 years to come up with their own unique Business idea. The brainchild of the Promgramme is Co Kerry Photographer Jerry Kennelly who is no stranger to the odd entrepreneurial idea himself.
 
The programme offers children an environment where they can learn key skills such as problem solving, Communication, Technology, creative thinking and confidence. Although there is no such specific lesson in entrepreneurialism on the current curriculum, Jerry Kelly believes that these are key skills that all Children need in the real world and will benefit enormously from. There is also recent research that suggests that those who have access to the programme are more likely to go on and start their own business, having the confidence to believe in themselves.
 
Amongst some of the business ideas created by the pupils include a game called Marching The Map, a game produced by class pupils, Flowerboxes again invented and produced by the Pupils and a DIY Healthy lifestyle cook book. The children are exposed to business opportunities they haven’t considered before including talks with local entrepreneurs, whilst some Children will be extremely inspired, others will decide its not for them. The most important thing about the whole programme is giving Children that gate way early on in life and providing an environment that nurtures confidence at an early age which reaps benefits later on.
 
Many Parents are also coming on board as they see the enthusiasm in their Children and this all creates an environment for change that allows Children who wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to enter an entrepreneurial world and show their skills.
