Corporate Sponsorship — Acton Children’s Business Fair

Sponsor Online

The Acton Children's Business Fair of Washington, DC is a one-day showcase of the power of entrepreneurship for even the youngest children. Children ages 6 to 14 create a business, sell to real customers, and keep the profits. We provide outdoor tents and tables. It’s that simple.

Along the way children learn about entrepreneurship. More importantly, they learn about themselves and what they’re capable of. Learn more in our sponsorship slide deck!
