For Andelina Wood, spending the week in the BizKids summer camp developing a business was a bit of a dream come true.

“I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and I really enjoy doing all this stuff and learning about how to become successful in business,” said the 10-year-old.

On Friday, Wood joined 11 other small business developers at the BizKids Market Day, wrapping up the week-long summer camp held by the Northwest Innovation Centre in which participants aged 9 to 12 go from business idea to inception, learning all the steps in between.

“All week they work on learning different aspects of business so they do their business plans, they get a loan, they do their budgeting, create a logo, do their marketing and then today the market day they’re up and running open for business,” said Kendall Kerbashian, program co-ordinator.
