Future Entrepreneurs Global is an online entrepreneurial educational platform for children and youth around the world. We aim to teach elementary and middle school children ranging from age 9-16 on how to run a business through our entrepreneurship programs.
Our mission is to empower children to become the 21st-century leaders by awakening their entrepreneurial spirit, inspiring them to become the architects of their futures, and giving them the confidence to transform their world. We believe that learning entrepreneurship at a young age is crucial. Therefore, we are striving to reshape education as many children are not being taught these important skills.
