“As simple as it sounds, every innovator, leader or successful entrepreneur was first a child. It’s important to not quench the curiosity and ingenuity that each child possesses. The Rochester Children’s Business Fair gives students the opportunity to launch businesses and learn valuable lessons that can be translated into other areas of life." -  Brittny Major-Elechi, founder of The Daniel Christian Academy, one of the sponsors of the fair.
