FE logo

We are delighted to formally launch the ABE Endorsed KidsMBA Future Entrepreneur of the Year 2022: a prestigious international competition which aims to find the young person who demonstrates the highest level of entrepreneurial acumen.  

All schools running the KidsMBA programme are invited to enter their strongest budding entrepreneurs - winners of the shark tank event - for selection to the final.

The prize

The winner will receive $1,000 prize money, plus they will hold the title Future Entrepreneur of the Year 2022, with a trophy and certificate.  A fantastic start to their future career!

The winner's school will also receive a trophy, certificate and 'winning school' logo for 12-months. And, of course, will be mentioned on all the subsequent publicity material.

How the competition works

Schools put through their winner from shark tank (or dragons' den) event that forms part of the KidsMBA programme.  Schools have until the end of June 2022 to submit entrants.

From these submissions, the finalists will be announced.  The judging will be by an external panel of business experts in early July.

Full details and entry forms have been emailed to eligible schools.   

Talking about the event, ABE's Head of Marketing, Linda Wilkin said, "This competition represents a great opportunity to sharpen the skills of budding young entrepreneurs but, as with the KidsMBA programme, it should also be a lot of fun.  Having seen some fantastic pitches from KidsMBA participants, I think this is going to be an inspiring annual event and a very tough competition."
