It’s been just over two months since we launched the UltraKids Club with the aim of giving children around the world access to an entrepreneurial education. We launched with a bang! The Ultrapreneur spoke to bright-eyed students at Fleet Primary School, introducing Malachi and Penelope’s UltraKid values. These include: ‘Be the best you can be,’ ‘put excellence in to get excellence out’ and ‘share what you know so it will help others grow.’ Of course, it’s just as important for UltraKids to have fun, so there is also ‘celebrating success’ and ‘enjoying what you do’ (always make time for an Ultra selfie!)
Malachi and Penelope have gotten to work helping children to become UltraKids with the launch of our iOS and Android mobile app, website, stories and Ultra special colouring book. But we haven’t even gotten started! Our aim is to create a great range of learning and teaching resources for kids, teachers and parents. There will be something to suit every child in the UltraKids Club!
Taking on one of our UltraKids values (a favourite of The Ultrapreneur) ‘have a ‘to be’ list not just a ‘to do’ list,’ our next mission is BIG! We want ‘to be’ in front of the eyes and ears of Sir Richard Branson, one of the world’s most famous and loved entrepreneurs. His #PitchtoRich competition gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their businesses and ideas to him, potentially winning investment and support from Virgin Business.
This would be a great opportunity for the UltraKids Club, helping us reach more children and helping them reach their Ultra potential. Sir Richard Branson has expressed ideas similar to the UltraKids and would be a great entrepreneur for us to work with. He recently said: “I think the best way of learning to run a business is actually to run a business. As part of the school curriculum, if everybody just set up a little business within their school – it could maybe even be a fictional business, with fictional money and so on.”
If we didn’t know better we’d have thought Malachi or Penelope had said that themselves! We believe that with the support of Sir Richard Branson and Virgin we can inspire children for generations to come and make a positive change in the world. We need your help!
