Innovative Kid (iKid) aims to implement entrepreneurial skills into education and experiential form to support slovak primary schools in the development of creativity and innovation. Small groups of children aged 10-14 years are working under the guidance of a teacher and mentor of the business environment to create their own startup project.

iKid lasts about six months, during which time each group goes the same the path as the real start-ups. From idea generation, product selection, through market research, producing a functional prototype to create their own brand and marketing strategy.

iKid  offers to the children during this period a variety of workshops, excursions to interesting Slovak firms and inspiring meetings with successful young Slovak innovators.
