The Xavier University Student Entrepreneurship Program (XU-SEP) in partnership with SM Prime Holdings, Inc. will conduct a 6-day, 2-hours/day summer program called “Junior Tycoons: Entrepreneurship for kids and teens” this May 16-21 2011 at the Pryce Entrepreneurship Laboratory (AVR4), 2/F SBM Building, Xavier University on days 1-5 and at SM City Cagayan de Oro (across National Bookstore) on day 6.
The organizers of the summer entrepreneurship program aim to promote and advocate entrepreneurship especially among the young.
The program aims to expose kids and teens ages 8 to 16 years old to the principles and lessons of entrepreneurship through fun-filled activities like Money Games, Accounting Games, Problem Solving Activities, and Sales & Marketing Exercises that will develop the children’s skills on problem solving, creativity and opportunity-spotting.
As the culmination, the participants will have an actual business launching at SM City to let them experience the feel of being real entrepreneurs that value money and money making and know the difference between a “Spender” and an “Earner.”
Parents may choose to let their children attend either the 10am-12nn or 1-3pm time slot for only P2,500 per participant inclusive of materials for the workshop and exercises.
