Getting kids to play with business teaches them an enormous amount about life, how our world works, vocabulary, teamwork and creativity,” says co-author and CEO, Jamie Brown. “It’s about financial literacy, yes. But it is also about problem solving and developing young minds to find and create opportunities and solutions.”
At the heart of the platform is one, central, character – Beatrice Banks, “Bea” for short (pronounced “Bee”). Bea utilizes business terminology and experiences, such as teamwork, competition , pricing strategy and assembly line production, to teach concepts pivotal to the understanding of the current business environment.
Says Meg Seitz, co-author and Vice President of Bea is for Business, “Our hope is that one young reader will connect with Bea and will want to learn more about business at a young age. We want tomorrow’s leaders, managers and CEOs to be confident, strategic, creative and business smart. Imagine what’s possible for the future if they start thinking like that today – at age 8?”
