The Smart Kids Business Fair is a signature entrepreneurship event for children ages 6-19 in Nigeria aimed at spurring young people to innovate, create products and services, build a lean business model and move ahead to make sales, close deals and learn some more at the SKB Fair. The SKB Fair is a platform where businesses are created and launched entirely by children with inspiring blend of innovation, ideas and creativity. In the process of making a business we want children to learn about costs, revenue and profit. They should calculate their break-even point and ensure their business is directed toward making profit and social impact.

The Smart Kids Biz Fair is a marketplace for young entrepreneurs and their schools to showcase the businesses they have built and engage with financial institutions, potential investors, and relevant government agencies like CAC, NIPC, NEPC, NDE, BOI etc to receive free business advice, mentorship and support from experts. The 2018 SKB Fair is in commemoration with the Global Money Week theme: “Money Matter Matters”. Global Money Week (GMW) is a global money awareness celebration that takes place in March every year. It is coordinated by the Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) Secretariat to raise awareness on Economic Citizenship and directly engage children and youth worldwide on the issue. The Smart Kids Biz Fair will encourage friends, family, community members, and entrepreneurs alike to come out and support the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders. Schools, organizations and parents choosing to partner or invest in these children’s enterprises should expect a return on their investment. The children's business fair is a way we want to give children the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century.
