There were 27 booths of child led vendors.

The organizations owner says that each year, more and more kids are inspired to create their own business.

Tee Bates from the Children’s Business Fair says, “Our goal is just to round up those children because it seems to be more and more that we keep finding are into entrepreneurship. Kids came out and the next fair, they wanted to apply. You know they took the time to think about what can I do to so that I can open my own business and they are having so much fun. Like, they are just like little grown ups and it’s amazing, It really is.”

The Chattanooga Children’s Business Fair will host another event in 2020.
