Begins Today at the
Biz Kidz Expo
Kids ages 7-17 invited to register! See details and deadlines on registration page!
The mission of Biz Kidz Expo, a Top Notch Connections event, is to encourage and nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of young people and help them create a successful business enterprise. During the Biz Kidz Expo, your child will have the opportunity to either sell their uniquely created products or service or, debut their business proposal to some of the top executives in Southwest Florida; competing for a chance to win one of six monetary prizes, with the top prize also including complimentary business coaching valued at over $500!
Show Your Stuff. Build Your Business.
Young people are invited to bring their unique creations to sell or present their completed business proposals at the inaugural event on Saturday, April 16th, 2022 at the New Hope Event Center. Elementary school-age entrepreneurs will compete in the Junior Division, and future Middle School and High School business leaders will compete in the Senior Division. Every competitor will have the opportunity to pitch their business to a group of judges who represent some of Collier County’s leading companies and service organizations. Each participant will pitch their proposal to our panel of judges, who will score each entry on originality, viability, scalability, and impact. The first, second, and third-place winners will receive monetary awards to help make their dream come true and launch the next generation of business leaders!
Learn From Business Experts
Prior to the judging, every participant will also receive a one-on-one coaching session with a business mentor to help them refine their idea and coach them on how to best present their creation or plan to our panel of judges – helping your child have a richer understanding of what it takes to bring their idea to fruition – regardless of how they place in the competition. The Biz Kidz Expo is an opportunity for your child to learn from local business leaders and gain insights and access to the necessary resources they need to turn their idea from concept to reality.
