Juliet Vincet-Obi, the Founder of Kidpreneurs Africa, emphasized that the fair served as a platform for children who completed their Business Class to exhibit their products and services. The overarching goal was to nurture entrepreneurial skills and raise awareness about environmental issues.

Leading up to the fair, children underwent training in diverse areas such as bead making, artwork, snacks and juice production, fashion design, sales, marketing, branding, and financial literacy. Parents expressed their appreciation for the initiative, noting the positive impact on their children’s entrepreneurial zeal.

One highlight of the event was the Business Pitch competition, where young entrepreneurs like Harvard Mbadiwe showcased their capabilities and gained confidence in their business ideas. Temitope Okunnu, representing Fabe International and Eco School Nigeria, commended the young CEOs for their innovative solutions to local challenges and applauded Kidpreneur Africa for its role in nurturing young minds.
