Biz Kidz Academy is a non-profit 501(c) organization, founded by Dr. Marlene Jackson and her daughter, Ashley Jackson. The Christian-focused organization was established to inspire students (Ages 5-18), to become successful kidpreneurs. The goal of the program is to motivate business-minded leaders to creatively embrace their entrepreneurial spirit, lead confidently, think critically, and become financially responsible.
On May 18, 2019, Biz Kidz sponsored its’ annual Market Day/Shark Tank Competition/Award Ceremony. Family, friends, and the community were invited to come out to support aspiring kidpreneurs as they sold their products and pitched their business ideas to a panel of judges.
