The Kiddsbay Business Map takes kids through a step-by-step business-building journey starting from idea, through to planning and preparing to get their business ready for launch. Kiddsbay is fun, safe & educational.
To help kids come up with their next BIG business idea, the Business Map will help kids explore their passions and strengths. When kids complete their Business Map they have a blueprint to their business.
Missions are tasks to help kids think through components of their business. Missions help kids work through each step of the Business Map and provide a great opportunity to have conversations with your kids about their business.
The best way for kids to learn is by doing! Challenges give kids the opportunity to test their business idea and to plan and prepare for the launch of their businesses. Adults must mark each challenge as completed in order to unlock further levels on the Business Map
Adults can view their kid’s progress and help them complete steps of the Business Map by ticking off challenges to unlock new levels.
Kiddsbay makes me feel motivated to run a
business. It helps me to do what I am
passionate about: learn and make money!
"Kiddsbay has given me confidence. Having my
own business is something that I want,
not something that I have to do."
"Kiddsbay helps you come up with loads of different business ideas. I like
doing origami and I think more people should do it too. With help from my
Dad, we came up the name “Origami 4 Me”, I had fun making a logo and I’m
learning to create it into a business.”
"Kiddsbay is fun, quality time spent with my daughters. It’s not hard to find
20 to 30 minutes each weekend, knowing this also gives real-world skills
for future success they can’t get in the classroom or anywhere else.”
"My son is very creative. Kiddsbay enabled him to tap into these skills and has also given
him greater confidence. Kiddsbay has also changed how I look at problems and now we
talk about how we can turn these problems into potential opportunities.”
"It was awesome doing Kiddsbay with my Daddy. It gave me great ideas and good information
to start my business called “Draw & Explore”. I love, love, love colouring in!
Now I can help people share information about how to draw.”
