About

About the Children’s Business Fair

The Baltimore Children’s Business Fair is a nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire and develop young entrepreneurs in and around the Baltimore area.  We do this through workshops, camps, expos, and our annual event, the Baltimore Children’s Business Fair.

At the Baltimore Children’s Business Fair event, kids will create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers, and any parent seen selling to the customer or promoting the child’s product will result in disqualification from the competition.

A previous competitor from 2009, Makaila Ulmer of Bee Sweet Lemonade, was once a participant in the Acton Children’s Business Fair.  Mikaila’s Bee Sweet Lemonade is now sold in Whole Foods Market across the country as a result of her young business savvy.

This year’s event is sponsored by the Chesapeake Educational Alliance, Chase Street Accessories and Engraving, Baltimore Community Lending, Baltimore Museum of Industry, Launch Business Camp, Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our Baltimore donors and volunteers, who all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.

Whether an entrepreneur is famous, like Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey, or one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these entrepreneurs are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs, and serve their communities.
