Kidpreneur Offers Entrepreneurial Classes For Tweens

At both its Northville location and its temporary Detroit pop-up spot, Kidpreneur teaches tweens about business and technology

Today's metro Detroit tween may be tomorrow's world-known entrepreneur. That's the goal of Kidpreneur's hands-on, tech-infused classes at its Northville home base and temporary pop-up spot in Detroit.

Kidpreneur

The goal of Kidpreneur is to provide a place for kids to discover their inner entrepreneur and create. Founder Thanh Tran is a Novi dad of two – and says introducing entrepreneurship early on is crucial and can lead to big things for kids' futures.

At Kidpreneur, kids can take a variety of classes, which are mostly for kids 9-13, including Android and iOS app development, Lego robotics, entrepreneurship, Minecraft.biZ, web design, video production and animation. Classes begin Jan. 18 in both Detroit and Northville.

Tran says he noticed in Detroit, "There's not enough family or kid-friendly activities" – something he hopes to change with his business

Kidpreneur's downtown Detroit location will open in mid-January 2014 for two months as part of D:hive's third Pilot program. D:Hive's previous Pilot winner, Spielhaus Toys, also had a family focus.

To sign up for classes, visit Kidpreneur's website. You can pick the location at which you'd like your child to attend classes, which range from $25 for a one-time, one-hour parent/child workshop in Detroit to $249-$399 for other, longer classes at both locations. Must register for classes by Jan. 6, 2014 for their Jan. 18 start date.
