SAM’S Business Bus, is a free entrepreneurial programme that’s about to set off on a nationwide journey to promote  entrepreneurship among school children aged ten to twelve and inspire them to become the entrepreneurs of the future.

Funded by Enterprise Ireland, and EDelia Group, Sam’s Business Bus will deliver the programme on a national basis over the coming months. The programme is written by educators for educators and provides a range of classroom ready resources for teachers.

Entrepreneurship education helps pupils from all socioeconomic backgrounds to think with imagination and develop new skills. By introducing young children to entrepreneurial skills, they will develop initiative, gain a better understanding of what good leadership and management traits are, so they can act in a socially responsible way.
