Produced with Purpose has announced its fourth annual Young Entrepreneurs Showcase on Saturday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Miami International Mall. Applications are open through Apr. 3.
Produced with Purpose was born from founder Leila Hilliard’s curiosity and desire to begin her own business at 10 years old. Leila was determined to be a trailblazer and inspire other young entrepreneurs who wanted to begin businesses like she did, and she accomplished that with support from her teachers and parents.
The Young Entrepreneurs Showcase grew from the desire to allow young kids to brainstorm an idea, develop a business, and launch it to the community. This event is free to the public, and the community is encouraged to support the Young Entrepreneurs and purchase from their businesses on this day.
Registration is open for any Kid Bosses from grades 3 to 10 who would like to participate.
All business categories are welcome and encouraged to register. Produced with Purpose has had over 40 businesses participate in Young Entrepreneurs Showcase year to year. During this one-day showcase, Kid Bosses display their creativity and sell their original products and services. Most of these impressive businesses run year-round. All Kid Bosses are responsible for their booth setup, sales transactions, and interactions with customers. To register as an entrepreneur visit producedwithpurpose.org.
“At Produced with Purpose, we believe that every child has gifts that can alter communities in a profound way,” Leila said. “These gifts can be channeled into the creation of products and services that solve problems and bring about waves of positive change in the world.
The Young Entrepreneurs Showcase is hosted yearly to give the inspired young minds a place to show people how they would like to make change in their communities and beyond.”
Produced with Purpose is thrilled to have the support of their chair sponsor, The Al & Jane Nahmad Family Foundation and City of Doral Mayor Christi Fraga.
“When we encourage our young people to think outside the box, take risks, and pursue their passions, we are investing in the future of our communities and our world,” Mayor Fraga said. “By giving them the tools and support they need to turn their ideas into reality, we are fostering innovation, creativity, and a sense of purpose that will drive progress and prosperity for generations to come.”
