Start-Up! Kids Club

Start-Up Kid's Club shapes the world by cultivating entrepreneurship to broaden youth perspective and enhance life skills through community connection and experience. It seeks to unlock the capability and possibility inside every child as soon as possible. By creating an inclusive environment that works with children as young as five, they believe entrepreneurship has the power to not only equip students with valuable life skills, but help break poverty cycles.

Start-Up runs with the help of volunteers and community members who are looking to give back. Current volunteer needs include event and class volunteers, mentors, videographer and photographers, a public relations rep, and Lake Travis Community library class facilitator. Head here for more info.

Kids with ideas that could be the next big deal can attend Pitch Yea! on January 27, 2019, at the Stateside Paramount Theater. Students 18 and under can pitch their business ideas in front of a celebrity judging panel for a chance to win funding and cool prizes. All finalist will walk away with prizes, and top winners are awarded a "Start-Up" funding package.
