Raising the Entrepreneurial Child

October 25, 2010  |  3 comments

This week we’ve reached out to our friends down in South Florida asking the question “What does it take to raise an entrepreneurial child?” Alice Horn, the Executive Director at NFTE South Florida, tells us that she’s heard countless times from parents she has met, “How can I make sure my child thinks like an entrepreneur?”  In her experiences parents in fact realize that their children have the ability to reason, be creative, analyze and collaborate which are all essential skills for survival in the 21st century.  In the cases of the two young South Florida entrepreneurs who were in New York City last week for the OppenheimerFunds/NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge these skills were crucial in the creation and execution of their business plans. Jessica Barrios, who developed a customized mural business called SPLASH, and Daniel “DJ MVay” McVay, who started his own party deejay business called Scratch, unfortunately did not win but they walked away from the competition with entrepreneurial skills which will benefit them for the rest of their lives.   Alice states, “As I observed their interaction with their supportive parents, it became clear to me what a large role parents can play to raise an entrepreneurial child.”
