“We had an overwhelmingly positive response to KidPreneur in 2017, so we are delighted to be hosting the festival again this year. The entrepreneurs we are working with for 2018 are all hyper-talented and we have so much admiration for them and all they’ve achieved in their young careers. They are proof that great business thinking can be nurtured and developed at any age, and that’s really the message we’re trying to deliver with KidPreneur. ”
