About this Event

Dream Builder, Junior is a fun and educational workshop for entrepreneurial kids who want to learn the ins and outs on how to take their big idea and turn it into a real business plan. Kids ages 7-12 will learn from real life small business owners and experts on what it takes to get their business up and running.

Registration is limited to 25 children.

Microloan Presentation

Following the workshop a limited number of children will have the opportunity to present their business idea in front of a panel of judges. The judges will award a $1,000 forgivable microloan to one lucky recipient. If awarded the child will be required to attend 2-3 business counseling sessions at The Iowa Center to review financial documents and processes. As you complete registration be sure to check "yes" if your child is interested in being selected to participate in the Microloan Presentation.

Dream Builder, Junior is a collaboration between Salon Spa W, Iowa Center for Economic Success, and 7-year old Arden Wong Fortney of Des Moines.
