AMĪA Works proudly sponsored The Greensboro Children's Business Fair held in the Summer of 2018. This event served as a fun learning experience for local youth between the ages of 6-16. The children ran their own micro-enterprises for the day. They set up their own "pop-up shops", engaged their customers, made money, gave out change, and learned to problem solve on the fly that day. The parents really loved seeing their kids in action. We gave out cash prizes for winners in specific categories like Best Booth Design and Most Profitable Idea.
- The 1st GCBF was held in June of 2018, at the Cultural Arts Center, Downtown Greensboro. The 2nd GCBF was in July of 2019, @ Create Me Studio on Battleground Ave.,Greensboro.
