Small stature, big ideas - we want to hear about the entrepreneurial kids in your life.

Young people have always had wild imaginations, but technology and social media have made the world of enterprise even more accessible for the kids of today.

While second-hand toy stalls and amateur shows were once the only way to wrangle some extra pocket money, the kids of today have the ability to delve into a whole new world via their computers and phones.

Do you know a young person converting their big ideas into a real-life business?

We'd love to hear about Kiwi kids who are getting stuck in and showing initiative and innovation in their lives.

Maybe there's a kid in your neighbourhood who has put a new spin on the traditional lemonade stand and is reaping the rewards, or perhaps a child in your family has tapped into a promising social media business.

Has a child or teen you know found a creative way to fundraise for their sports team? Or perhaps they've spotted a gap in the market and are exploring a way to make money from something you never would have considered?

How has their age played into their business ideas? Has it been advantage or a disadvantage having less entrepreneurial experience?

Send us your stories, photos and videos of the mini moguls in your life and the creative ways they are pushing the boundaries.
