The Neni Market is a youth entrepreneurial program paired with a one-day community event, created for children 7 - 13 years of age to experience the wonderful world of entrepreneurship. Our goal is to encourage creativity, innovation, and hard work through this thought-provoking program, which offers entrepreneurial workshops led by our team and supported by mentors in the business community. It exposes the youth to the fundamentals of business. “EntrepreNenis" will create a business and have the opportunity to sell their products or services at The Neni Market event on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at the Guam Premium Outlets.

Rules & Guidelines
Each EntrepreNeni should be willing and able to take ownership of their business, from planning to execution. Their participation should be based on, first and foremost, their happiness and eagerness to partake in the steps of owning their business. The parents are there to guide and help, but the child should take the lead and do the work. “You can give a kid a fish and feed him for a day, or you can teach a kid to fish and feed her for a lifetime!”
The Neni Market is a youth entrepreneurial program designed to provide children with education and experience. All EntrepreNenis must attend at least 2 of the 4 workshop options from the program. Ideally, the more workshops they attend the more valuable information they’ll gain from our business mentors.
All participants must be within the ages of 7-13 years old. EntrepreNenis can have a team of up to 3 members. There is no age limit for team members. Please note: there is an additional charge of $20 per team member to cover costs for participants' workbook and event t-shirt.
