So, what’s the hype all about? The Kidpreneur Expo is your ticket to exploring the world of business and entrepreneurship, no matter your age. This isn’t just any expo—it’s a full-on experience packed with opportunities, learning, and a whole lot of fun.

First up, the giveaways are going to be epic! Imagine walking away with one of five $500 business grants to kickstart your business dreams. And that’s not all—there will be 250 free hoodies, hats, and backpacks loaded with school supplies up for grabs. Talk about a win!

But it’s not just about the freebies and fun. The main goal of the Kidpreneur Expo is to equip young attendees with the knowledge and confidence they need to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams. There will be tons of resources, inspirational talks, and practical advice to help you on your journey to financial freedom.
