This past Saturday June 2nd, the Redwood City Library and local non-profit Casa Circulo Cultural held their first "Annual Children's Business Fair". The goal of the fair was to empower young entrepreneurs, ages 7 to 14 to launch and run their own businesses. The kids got to attend workshops at Casa Circulo's headquarters and had to develop a brand, create a product or service and a marketing strategy.
CG Moving Co. CEO Charlie Gonzalez and Customer Service Manager Olga Garcia attended the fair and presented Casa Circulo Cultural with a donation of $2,700.00. The donation, along with other funds collected from fellow sponsors Nexus Venture Partners, Patelco Credit Union, Divia Express Insurance Agency Inc. , Tammie Pereira Insurance Services and Telemundo 48, funded the children's business ideas and covered event expenses. At the fair, they had tables and tents set up to display their products, brands and marketing materials and the children were able to sell their creations.
The products were as diverse as the young entrepreneurs, ranging from popcorn, plants, tie dye shirts, face painting services, cupcakes, cake pops, bracelets, slime, beads crafts, soaps, paintings, handmade clocks, science lab demos, and customized capes for Lego minifigures. Just to name a few! The pride and enthusiasm was palpable. The children were very well prepared to describe their products and solicited sales from the fair goers. For many of the children, their entire families were there showing support. You could see and feel the pride and joy of seeing their children's business idea out for the world to see. It was really nice to welcome the month of June in the company of such vibrant and smart kids!
We believe in empowering our community, and investing in our future. We know the children learned a great deal about how to create a a product or service and how to take it to the the marketplace. We cannot be more proud to be part of this experience and hope to see many of the young business people make it big and achieve their entrepreneurial goals.
