The Story of BizWorld

The BizWorld founder, venture capitalist Tim Draper from the US, was asked by this eight-year-old daughter to describe what he did at work every day. Excited by the opportunity to explain entrepreneurship business to a third grader, he used his daughter's enthusiasm for making a friendship bracelet to create a project-based program in which students learn to start and run a business.


The need and demand for BizWorld's hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to learning quickly became apparent. The BizWorld Foundation was established in 1997 to make BizWorld programs available to all children around the world. 


Being the exclusive partner of BizWorld, Kids Biz Academy allows children in Hong Kong, without needing to travel to Silicon Valley, to understand the real world and discover more about themselves through the experiential entrepreneurship programs.
