When we talk about entrepreneur is about someone that creates something new, either an initiative, a business or a company. The entrepreneur might not be the ideator, but he or she is definitely the one that decides to make that idea a reality. And to create an individual who has entrepreneurial mindset, can be start since young age. Therefore, Prof. Wawan Dhewanto, Dina Dellyana, Adrian Ariatin, Arianne M. Zahra, Asyiffa F. Awallia, Mharta A. Wardana, Ronal Ferdilan, and Tribowo R. Fauzan wrote a book entitled “CHILDPRENEURSHIP”. The book launching held on Saturday, September 17, 2022 in the Nemangkawi auditorium, 6th Floor, SBM ITB.
The book “CHILDPRENEURSHIP” guides teachers and parents to introduce and develop an entrepreneurial spirit in their beloved children. This book contains not only entrepreneurial concepts in children but also applications of these concepts so that parents can guide their children to actively develop soft and hard skills that will support their entrepreneurial skills. The entrepreneurial paradigm usually deals with how a product is made and sold and how to make a profit from selling the product. This book emphasizes how children can develop their creative abilities, seek opportunities, and dare to take risks that are in line with entrepreneurial skills in general, so the output of this book is expected that children can be more active and proactive in their self-development.
This book begins with a discussion of the basic concepts of entrepreneurship in children, then continues with the roles and attitudes of parents and schools toward children who can foster the entrepreneurial spirit. After that, an explanation of how to maintain the potential of children’s entrepreneurship skills, followed by a deeper explanation of age-appropriate entrepreneurship coaching techniques and examples of how to form independent habits. The following chapters describe the stories of how young entrepreneurs emerged and successfully marketed their products. This book is complemented by projects to develop children’s entrepreneurial abilities, which are arranged based on the age range of children.
“Entrepreneurs are not naturally born, but nurturally made and there are many ways to create it which we summarize in this book”, said Adrian Ariatin. Hopefully, this book can be helpful for anyone, especially parents who want to explore the entrepreneurial potential of their children. This book is also expected to be useful for teachers who wish to apply the entrepreneurship curriculum to their students.
