Welcome to Raising Biz Kidz
Where breaking paradigms, thinking differently and having a new way to educate and inspire our kids is the NEW norm.
I’m Marina Kuperman Villatoro, founder of Raising Biz Kidz. I’ve been an entrepreneur for over two decades. And, like many entrepreneurs, it has taken me years and thousands of dollars to learn (and unlearn) skills and reprogram my mindset that is needed to succeed in business and life.
Entrepreneurial Mom’s Frustrations
As a mom of two boys (7 and 13 years old) I want them to be educated with the right set of tools from the start, rather than go thru all the relearning and time loss I had to do.
When I started to inquire about different workshops, conferences and activities to do with kids, I came up with almost nothing.
Not to mention that the school systems nor online programs don’t offer these critical life skills to our kids.
Only a selected few private schools scattered around the Silicon Valley, whose parents are mainly entrepreneurs, realize the absolute magnitude for our kids to get these lessons and training early on.
It doesn’t have to be only for the privileged at high prices.
Finding the Solution for Our Kids’ Future
Let’s face it, our kids will not be able to succeed in the modern, entrepreneurial economy without having the right tools to get them there.
Out of my own frustrations that my own kids aren’t getting this education in school, I started the Entrepreneurship for Kids Program at my son’s middle school – Antigua Green School.
Working closely with the director, who is an entrepreneur himself and a visionary, he is completely supporting this revolutionary subject where most of the classes are actually outside of the classroom.
Let’s get real, in life very little happens in a classroom or any sort of room. All the true magic, action, creation and business happens outside either networking, creating, exploring, etc…
Seeing the kids come alive with ideas, meeting and working with entrepreneurs who are already doing it and learning from them has shown me that this is absolutely crucial for our kids to evolution whatever path they decide to take.
