In the spirit of encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs, BizWorld UAE is conducting entrepreneurship workshops for children aged 8 to 12 in the UAE. The program is an extension of the original BizWorld program launched 19 years ago in Silicon Valley to teach children business skills, which has impacted more than 600,000 children globally, with its website stating that classes increased their score by 63% after attending the program. The four-week workshop trains young students the basics of launching and managing a business, including creating a business plan, to marketing and sales.
