Crowdfunding for Young Entrepreneurs with Kid Everest

Crowdfunding for Young Entrepreneurs with Kid Everest

When their grade 5/6 teacher asked them “to create an idea that would change the world”, Kayla, Keagan and Ashley felt what was missing was a safe way for kids to fund their business.

Existing crowdfunding platforms share private information so for these three sisters, now 12 and 13 years old, that wasn’t an option. In fact Kickstarter, a popular crowdfunding hub, clearly states in their Terms of Use “To sign up for an account, you need to be at least 18 years old, or old enough to form a binding contract where you live. If necessary, we may ask you for proof of age.” They simply weren’t built with kids in mind.

That was the beginning of Kid Everest, the world’s very first crowdfunding platform meant just for kids. Hoping to inspire more young entrepreneurs to follow their dreams these sisters aim to “build an empire”!

They offer some great insights for every young entrepreneur to help keep them motivated and are a great example of ‘be the change you want to see in the world’. A really inspiring interview! And a huge shout out to Nels Tooker at Newington Public School in Newington, New Hamphire (the aforementioned teacher) – we think you’re pretty awesome!

Kid Everest has some great information on their site for staying safe:
