Lemonade Day and Small Business Association of Michigan connect business owners with youth entrepreneurs
February 11, 2013
Lemonade Day Detroit and the Small Business Association of Michigan are joining forces to connect small business owners with budding entrepreneurs across the state. The partnership will promote businesses who host youth lemonade stands June 8 in support of Lemonade Day.
Lemonade Day Detroit is part of a national effort to teach children how to start, own and operate a business through the simple, time-honored act of running a lemonade stand. The organization is expanding state-wide in its third year of helping youngsters learn valuable skills and business acumen. The goal is provide tools and inspire children, from preschoolers to teens, to become the next generation of Michigan leaders.
Members of SBAM who purchase $500 Small Business Sponsorships will promote their business through the Lemonade Day materials and website. They will also be recognized through social media channels and guest blog posts. In return, they are asked to host a young entrepreneur’s lemonade stand at their business on Lemonade Day June 8.
“The Lemonade Day motto of ‘spend a little, save a little and share a little’ incorporates key small business adages: financial management and community support,” added Rob Fowler, SBAM president and CEO. “As a father and a small business advocate, I’m very happy to support a program that is creating Michigan’s future entrepreneurs.”
