You are aware of the potential of your idea and know-how to fix the gaps in the market. But you can only sell your beliefs when adults believe in you. Don’t be sad!
This is where Moonshot Jr steps in and eases your life. Moonshot Jr lets young minds fiddle with technology & future ideas and channels them in the right direction. None of your ideas are stupid, and let no one tell you that. Moonshot Jr guides children in adopting a four-step approach in getting them where they want to be, the world of business.
Let’s see how Moonshot Jr’s Innovator Program can help your child become a ‘kidpreneur’ and make them smart decision-makers.
For any entrepreneur to become successful, it is essential to first choose a path. With children, it begins with mere interest that needs classification. Before coming up with something innovative, it is vital to make sure that you identify the child’s area of interest.
This is because one has to commit to an idea till the entrepreneurial idea is manifested, and the product is launched.
Albert Szent-Györgyi said, “Innovation is seeing what everybody is seeing and thinking what nobody has thought.”
Every child has specific areas of interest. However, one can find these hard to express or it could be difficult for parents to follow. At Moonshot Jr, your child is introduced to different areas of science, arts, and technology.
The dedicated and experienced team of Moonshot Jr observes your child’s interests and provides continuous guidance in various fields. Children can nurture their interests deeper and play around with the concepts that they find fascinating.
The group sessions play a significant role when it comes to subject matter experts or industry leaders interacting with the children. The very function of Moonshot Jr is to ensure that children start challenging themselves outside the textbook while playfully applying in-depth concepts.
Once the child is acquainted with their area of interests, it is safe to assume that the foundation for entrepreneurship has been built and they are moving towards becoming a kidpreneur.
You must already know that just having an idea is not enough unless it is implemented and brought to fair use. Children have a lot of potential when it comes to ideation and given the guidance of the experts, they are channeled to think on the right path.
In the previous stage, the young minds explored more in-depth into the subject matter to understand the elements associated with the concepts of interest. At this stage, these elements are tested to perform practically.
Moonshot Jr’s role at this stage is to provide the child with product-first learning, which introduces subjects and related concepts with a combination of entrepreneurial knowledge.
Adam Smith said, “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities, but of their advantages.”
Moonshot Jr channels hidden talent into the fields that are the most productive. Students of Moonshot Jr intend to take on the baton of future global business. They are already taking a stand on sustainability through sustainable business ideas while considering profitability.
The areas vary from AI, robotics, sensors, automation, finance, arts, and video creation to e-Commerce.
This step is associated with the formulation of the product idea. It encompasses the application of all that had been imbibed, actualizing them in a manifested product. The learning and development of a young entrepreneur is very crucial.
Children who are aspiring entrepreneurs must know how to make use of and implement these aspects in product innovation. This is a very crucial stage for entrepreneurship.
It is difficult to find a great deal of dedication from young minds in creating their product before actualizing their business, which is where the innovation experts of Moonshot Jr assist the aspiring kidpreneurs.
The 5-step innovation technique – empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test – makes room for intensive learning, which is applied all along.
Empathizing and defining are the initial stages of identification of interest, followed by ideation, prototyping, and testing. Children are introduced to design thinking, where the design team of Moonshot Jr looks into the performance and cost-efficiency of the product.
Some of Moonshot Jr star kids came up with innovative STEM toy ideas, which were found relevant because of practical experiments associated with these toys. It is at this step that the final opinions of others are considered before testing and launching the same.
Business becomes a success when supply meets demand. Great ideas might not be relevant if customers do not find those useful. The selling point hence becomes the prime testing point.
It is also essential that the product is well funded, which becomes a problem as children are evidently short of funds. To find the validity and viability of an idea, the design experts launch the product through eCommerce websites.
Moonshot Jr helps children find an apt marketplace and promotes the idea through eCommerce sites. The final step encapsulates the finance part as well. The products are funded through crowdfunding.
At this stage, the kidpreneur gets associated with the idea of proposing the product through a business model, ensuring that expectations are met. A significant aspect of this stage is the gig economy.
Online marketing techniques are considered in this step. Moonshot Jr offers the kidpreneur to get the product/s launched on platforms like Alibaba, Amazon, Flipkart, and so on.
So kids and future leaders… Moonshot Jr is with you. Not being taken seriously is one of the most typical complaints found amongst kids. Unfortunately, most parents fail to identify that children are more creative when they are young.
