How Entrepreneurship Empowers Minds and Creates Opportunities

An amazing program helping school aged kids foster Entrepreneurship! What’s not to love!

Introducing First Pivot: Nurturing Tomorrow's Empathetic Entrepreneurs by Jim from First Pivot.

There is a saying that says, "You can't be what you can't see." When we heard about Kai's remarkable entrepreneurial journey, we knew instantly that students needed to see and hear this inspiring story.

At First Pivot, our mission is to inspire and educate the next generation of entrepreneurs. We firmly believe that entrepreneurship underpinned with empathy can provide a positive change on a global scale. Our programs extend to both primary and secondary schools throughout Australia. We’ve partnered with Kai and Kaiko Fidgets to allow students to learn and earn about entrepreneurship by opening up their own fidget spinner businesses.

Unveiling the Neurodiverse Thread

What do luminaries like Microsoft's founder Bill Gates, real estate magnate Barbara Corcoran, financial services company founder Charles Schwab, renowned fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, David Neeleman, the founder of JetBlue airlines, Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Airlines, Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA, and Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, all have in common? The answer: neurodiversity.

Entrepreneurship offers a range of benefits that align particularly well with the unique strengths and perspectives of neurodiverse individuals. Neurodivergent individuals often possess a high degree of creativity, innovative thinking and hyperfocus. Entrepreneurship allows them to channel this creativity and focus into developing unique solutions to problems. It goes beyond merely teaching business operations. It involves fostering creative thinking and cultivating a robust sense of self-value and responsibility. It is a mindset and a skillset.

To quote Alexander Den Heijer, "When a flower fails to blossom, you adjust the environment it grows in, not the flower itself." Entrepreneurship provides neurodivergent individuals the opportunity to contribute their perspectives to the world of business and innovation. It is a platform where their strengths can shine and allow them to make a significant impact on their own terms. We are committed to supporting and guiding neurodivergent students on this incredible journey of entrepreneurship.
