BEA­CON Bay Re­tail Park will be host­ing a Mar­ket Day Chal­lenge on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 17 and ap­pli­ca­tions are open to all pupils from Grade 4 to Grade 7.

Young en­trepreneurs are re­quested to sub­mit their busi­ness plans in an ef­fort to se­cure their spot for the mar­ket day, for which the GO! & Ex­press are media part­ners.

Food, crafts and other ideas are wel­comed as we look for­ward to show­cas­ing a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts on the day.

“This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren to learn.

“The South African econ­omy is in des­per­ate need of young en­trepreneurs.

“Pro­grammes such as these pro- vide chil­dren prac­ti­cal op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­press their en­tre­pre­neur­ial flair.

“At the same time they pro­vide many won­der­ful life-skill lessons to be learned along the way,” Sheldon Lox­ton, founder of the Entrepreneurship Academy, added.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open and those in­ter­ested in par­tic­i­pat­ing are en- couraged to sub­mit their busi­ness plans at Bea­con Bay Re­tail Park man­age­ment of­fices be­tween 9am and 4pm Mon­day to Fri­day in or­der to be con­sid­ered as a stall holder at the Mar­ket Day Chal­lenge.

Ap­pli­cants will be ad­vised within 48 hours if their busi­ness plans have been ap­proved for the mar­ket day.

“The in­ter­est has been great and we look for­ward to a suc­cess­ful mar­ket day with lots of prizes up for grabs,” Lox­ton said.

Spa­ces are lim­ited and en­tries close at 4pm on Mon­day Oc­to­ber 5.
