Hundreds of young entrepreneurs participated
in our Detroit Children’s Business Fair
from 2016 to 2019.
Check out the archives here!

Children’s Business Fairs grant kids the opportunity to create a product, business model, marketing strategy and then sell that product to the public in a safe environment.

The Acton Children’s Business Fair model was originally developed by the Acton Academy Schools and Acton MBA Program, organizations which believe in the power of work and entrepreneurship to improve self esteem and strong communities. After several successful fairs in Texas, they chose to give the opportunity to others across the country. Now Acton Children’s Business Fairs are active or planned in 25 different cities across the country (and one in Guatemala).

We are excited to expand the into an annual event that shows the true potential of the youth of Detroit!
