emprendeKIDS, our Wishmakers this month!
May 18, 2015  |  Written by M. Rodrigo Brao

Our wishmaker this month is Rosa Poo, founder of emprendeKIDS (emprender in Spanish means to set about/start something), a learning program destined to encouraging cultural entrepreneurs between the ages of 6 and 16. Before launching this Project, she directed a communication agency oriented towards businesses. In this context, she met many professionals all around the world that got her to think: “Why not make these people more accessible to kids?” That is how she became a pioneer in Spain: by putting children in touch with entrepreneurs. The Project was called Initiator Kids. That was the seed of what is now known as emprendeKIDS, which follows the same principal but now includes educational experts into the equation. Through her summer camps in Cantabria and the emprendeKids Day, children really get to learn what being an entrepreneur really is.

But there are 3 things we shouldn´t force them to do: eat, sleep and se the bathroom. Keep reading to find out why.
