The Young Entrepreneur

The school grounds transformed into a buzzing bazaar on Market Day (3rd December 2022), as Young Entrepreneurs of Grade 6 were introduced to the world of business and marketing. Starting with conceptualizing the product, to wooing venture capitalists for investment and devising astute marketing strategies under the able guidance of their teachers, our sixth graders left no stone unturned to ensure this event was successful. The ‘Curio City’ sale was a collaborative effort of the students made for a memorable Saturday sale, topped off with the profits from its wide array of events going towards an organisation that supports the underprivileged.

The students excitedly put up attractive stalls exploding with colourful home décor, vibrant personal utility products and a lot more specialities handcrafted with love by them. All the stalls were enthralled by curious parents where every item was up for the grabs. By noon, all stalls were sold out including the ‘Tasty Nook’ which tickled every visitor’s taste buds with a gastronomic experience, as did the games counters which exploded with unlimited fun. The atmosphere was filled with entertainment by different forms of world dances to mesmerize the visitors. At the end of the event, students not only enthusiastically learnt how to create a business, sell products, advertise, calculate expenses, practice customer service, figure out profits; but also identified a successful entrepreneur in themselves.
