BizWorld Ireland is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes entrepreneurship skills for young people. We deliver workshops in primary schools nationwide, where pupils learn about money management and enterprise in fun and creative ways.

How many times have you heard a friend or colleague say they don’t really understand their pay-slip or they’re no good at budgeting, or they have no business sense? Generations of Irish children reached adulthood with only limited awareness of enterprise and financial management because entrepreneurship programmes were not on offer in Irish schools, particularly at primary level. Even today, what’s the only subject taught at secondary level that isn’t offered in primary schools? Business! BizWorld Ireland aims to address this issue, by partnering with schools throughout the country to deliver tailored enterprise workshops for 10- to 13-year-olds. Instilling an entrepreneurial spirit in children from a young age, and developing their awareness of financial management, means they are equipped to become financially responsible members of society. Because BizWorld Ireland workshops are delivered in fun and creative ways, they also make children excited at the prospect of maybe one day establishing their own business. Education in the past was geared towards giving young people the skills and knowledge necessary to get a job. At BizWorld Ireland, we aim to provide children with the tools and inspiration to someday become employers themselves. The skills children develop in BizWorld Ireland workshops are the most sought-after skills in the workforce today: creativity, collaboration, communication, teamwork, negotiation.

Mission: The BizWorld mission is to sow the seeds which will allow children to grow thwir future.
