Yes, you read that correctly. A young group of entrepreneurs have won the opportunity to present their business pitches to billionaire investor Warren Buffett.
The children making their pitches are between the ages of seven and 16 years old. The chosen few come from a group of 4000 entrants into the online competition.
This contest is directly tied to “The Secret Millionaires Club” cartoon. This is the cartoon where Warren Buffett appears in each episode and teaches the financial lessons to the children.
The Fairholme Foundation is sponsoring this contest and the By Kids For Kids Co. is overseeing the competition.
Three teams and five individuals are being flown into Omaha where they will present their ideas to Warren Buffett as well as a panel of judges.
There will be an online vote that takes place between May 6 through May 13, and this will help the finalists in their effort to win the grand prize in the amount of $5000. Each runner-up will receive $500 worth of prizes.
