My name is Hasina. I am the founder and CEO of Explorer Hop and will also be your child's Entrepreneurial coach this week.
The purpose of this camp is to teach children the potential of starting and launching their own businesses that would become a social initiative.
Through the week, they will be building a simplified business plan. They would exchange different company roles such as CEO, Finance VP, Marketing VP, Sales VP, Operations VP, and more. They will learn to build a solid brand from customer and competitor research. They will learn how to design a logo and advertisements.
I have met repeat students and so many of them have already built a business. It is so exciting to see them implement what they have learned through our Entrepreneurship, Video Editing, Graphic Design, and Website building classes.
