Entrepreneurship for Kids Education Program 2021 - Kidspreneurship
As the world moves toward gig economy, entrepreneurship is an absolute ‘must-have’ skill for kids growing up in a tech-dominated world. They also must possess a growth mind-set for a happy and fulfilling life.
Kidspreneurship workshops and camps are carefully designed for kids age 7 and above to equip them with tools that they can help them harness their full potential.
We firmly believe in ‘Learn through Play’ and all our workshops are activity based. After all, active participation = active learning!
For a holistic and consistent learning experience, we not only have programs for kids, we extend our programs to schools. We have plug and play curriculum and resources that schools can embrace to make kids ready for the future of work.
Story Behind Kidspreneurship & About the Coach
Swati holds a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology and a Master’s in Communication Management and Entrepreneurship. She has over 10 years of experience and has spent the better part of her career helping corporates, startups, small and medium enterprises with digital marketing strategies. She is an entrepreneur at heart and has raised investments to scale her business.
In 2018, while consulting an ed-tech startup she realized the gap between industry and school curriculum and created a new age curriculum & blueprint that focuses on entrepreneurial mindset for pre-teens. Swati is a regular trainer with many enrichment centers and schools in Singapore. GIIS recognized her valuable support as a mentor and judge for Star Young Achievers Program.
Swati has trained thousands of students to date. She is now seeing an increased number of training requests for Early Entrepreneurship Education from schools across Asia (including International Schools in India). Most parents observed increased emotional intelligence and an enhanced problem solving ability in their kids after few sessions with Kidspreneurship. Some students came up with extraordinary ideas during the class and are now pursuing those ideas.
Kidspreneurship program developed by Swati has also been awarded “Leaders in Early Entrepreneurship Education” at the fifth annual Singapore Awards by APAC Insider.
Swati has trained several professional trainers in Singapore including some veteran trainers from Adam Khoo Learning Centre, a leading education brand in South East Asia. All of them unanimously found the program to be extremely beneficial for their students. Enrichment centers have incorporated the training for their students. She is on a mission to create an edu-system that promotes an entrepreneurial mindset through workshops & regular programs for kids and teacher training programs for educators.
My name is Sugandha and my son Vvirajah is 8. He attended a week long Kidsenterprenuship camp which was held online. He had a wonderful experience and the benefit of attending it. The trainer Ms.Swati was caring and educating children to a standard of excellence that I feel is not easily found within the online camps. The camp was focused on kids’ EQ and on the child’s behaviour to think positive. The camp encouraged kids to solve their problems and try to focus on the fields where they want to excel. The worksheets provided were amazing and he was always excited to complete his worksheets. Children were treated with kindness and respect. Each child is given attention and made to feel important. The child gets to meet kids from all parts of the world. My son has gained so much confidence during this time. It is wonderful to see him growing with such a mindset. At the end of the course my son was sad that he won’t be seeing his teacher and friends every day. I recommend this course to all the parents who want their child to have growth and positive mindset
It was a fruitful session attending an Entrepreneurship training program for future trainers of a well-developed package. I really appreciated Swati taking the time to go through each slide meticulously so that we are all on the same page when it comes to future delivery. I am actually very thrilled to learn that there are follow-up modules for our children who wish to deep dive into the art of entrepreneurship. It is heartening to know that you begin with clearly defining what entrepreneurship is because I believe it sets the groundwork for future aspiring entrepreneurs to understand what truly is their endeavour. I am thrilled that program attendees will be guided step by step through what it takes to be future problem solvers for the greater good of humanity. That their business ideals will not only bring prosperity to their business entities and personal gains but also to help society live a better life. Elements such as building empathy, a keen observation as well as creative design thinking are skills that I firmly believe our youth needs as they traverse this 4th revolution. Keep it up, Swati. I will be honoured to help you propagate this course in the near future.
Swati is extremely detailed and forward thinking. The Training she conducted was well paced and she went through not just the content but the behavioral part of it too. All her materials were well designed and the entire training was very coherent and organized. Students will definitely benefit from the programme she has created as it talks and allows them to experience essential skills such as Empathy, Problem Solving, Design thinking and many more. Her programme touches on skills that arent very explicitly taught in schools therefore it is a great addition to any school curriculum. The activities are simple yet powerful. Love the simplicity and impact that it provides. Great job and I will definitely continue to be a part of this wonderful initiative!
More often than not, important key mindset traits like Empathy, Growth Mindset, and Open Mindedness, are left unspoken and unguided. Rather, we need to work towards these important aspects much earlier on. This allows kids the power to harness their full potential and to be able to work on things they are truly passionate about. Kidspreneurship allows kids
Signed Caleb up for an online Holiday Camp for 5 days. It’s nothing academic but it’s about Entrepreneurship with kIDSPRENEURSHIP! Caleb’s 2 hours each day is well spent learning new things and discovering his interest etc. He enjoyed the classes very much!
Dear Ms. Swati, “Thank you for a great interactive session. The students really got lots of opportunities to ask questions, think and share about their possible solutions which all made for a really enjoyable and informative session.”
Ms. Swati conducted an extremely fruitful session for our Grade 3 learners at Pathways School, Noida. The entire session spread over a period of 2 days. During this time, Ms. Swati interacted with the students and explained to them the modern concept of Kidspreneurship through the lens of design thinking cycle. She engaged the students through various picture prompts tasks and enhanced problem solving approaches among them. The session benefited our young learners a lot, as many of our learners were inspired to take up the role of an entrepreneur. In fact they were so enthusiastic that many of them have already started working on their novel business ideas and creating prototypes of the same. We are very grateful to Ms. Swati for consolidating a life long learning for our students in a playful yet thought provoking manner.
The session was quite enriching which motivated the learners to think out of the box and to explore the world of entrepreneurship in a fun and engaging way. Though I missed the first day session, I got to know from other teachers that the word “Entrepreneurship” was broken down in a very interesting way which all of them understood well.

My son, Raphael, is 12 years old. When I signed him up for the Kidspreneurship course, he was quite reluctant because he is not usually adventurous when it is trying something ‘unknown’. Just after the first day, he was so looking forward to the next day! Something must have excited him. The coach was also able to engage him to contribute to the course. Raphael benefited so much from just the 5 days course and he is asking if there is an advanced course
”I saw such a huge difference in my child’s confidence after few sessions with Swati. They are happier and they approach situations very confidently. I’d recommend all kids to go through the happiness workshop modules”
My kid enjoys activity based sessions By Kidspreneurship. I can see a significant shift in his behaviour while dealing with peers and elders.
