Austin Lemonade Day ~ May 4, 2014 {A Giveaway}

On Sunday, May 4, 2014, more than 15,000 young entrepreneurs will begin their first business at locations all around Austin. The sixth annual Lemonade Day Austin is a fun, free, event where kids get to make and keep the money that they earn. Kids of all ages learn to set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors, provide customer service, and give back to their community.

Participation in Lemonade Day is easy. A parent or caring adult can register their child online at or at one of dozens of local family events—see the website for a complete list. And we are offering an incentive for all those who sign up to participate in Lemonade Day this year - we re raffling off a $50 gift certificate to HEB - to help your young entrepreneurs buy their supplies to make their best-tasting lemonade!! (see below for more details)

The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow.

Each child who registers receives a yellow backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook that teaches them the 14 lessons of Lemonade Day, including creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some.

“Lemonade Day helps kids begin to think like entrepreneurs,” says Eugene Sepulveda, CEO of the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Central Texas, sponsor of Lemonade Day Austin. “All successful business persons started out with a small business: mowing lawns, delivering newspapers or running a lemonade stand. By setting up and operating their own business, kids get to experience success and learn valuable lessons about how businesses operate. They’ll also learn about the value of saving and investing money, and giving back to the community.”

For the first time, Lemonade Day Austin also has a mentorship component, where kids who are participating for the first time will have the opportunity to be paired an older child with lemonade stand experience who can offer advice on best practices and keys to success. For more information about mentorship opportunities or to sign up, go to
