Our Story

The Kid Boss Academy roared into life in mid 2018 when founder and CEO Jarrad Dober decided to combine his love of entrepreneurship and years of teaching experience into an amazing project that he hoped would open up a world of infinite possibilities for kids everywhere.

Through teaching Jarrad had seen incredible optimism and excitement from those youngest students he taught and so wanted to explore and build on these incredibly entrepreneurial traits. A dream to teach children how to turn the things they love into what they do for a living bread the 4 key pillars that underpin The Kid Boss Academy teachings.

Idea creation, financial literacy, life skills and social good are what surround every program we deliver. At the forefront we want children to know they will be the ones who make our world a better place and the solutions they put into place can be good for the world in more ways than one.

 

Our dream.

We’re not shy about saying that we want a world full of infinite possibilities for kids but how do we hope to achieve this?

In all honesty, we can’t. All we can do is provide the best possible environment and teachings and hope that these breed a sense of possibility in those we teach.

The Kid Boss Academy team aim to create an entrepreneurial curriculum for schools that mesh what children need to learn (the curriculum) with what the future is going to need your little ones to be able to do. This is a big goal, so for now we’ve created smaller stepping stones for your child to gain these skills in exciting and engaging ways.

Schools now how the opportunity to participate in our NSW Sustainable Entrepreneurship competition that teaches as well as gives children the chance to express their ideas for the chance to win great prizes for themselves and their school.

Parents have the opportunity to send their child to one of our holiday programs that over 3-days allow your child to explore and create their own sustainable company with the goal of making this world a better place for all.

Jarrad Dober

Co-Founder of award winning children’s safety company CleverDux, recipient of the Mass Challenge top 10 most influential and exciting start-ups of 2017, ex-teacher of so many amazing kids and now founder & CEO of Australia’s only company looking to give kids a future full of infinite possibilities through ‘The Kid Boss Academy.’

“The optimism, creativity and uniqueness of young children has always been a huge inspiration and to build a company that let’s them discover their true value at such a young age and then helps direct them on a path where one day they turn what they love into what they do brings me so much joy.”

Fact - I started my first company at age 8 and made $76 over 2 days. Unfortunately no one ever told me I could turn what i enjoyed into what I did for a living so it took another 15 years consisting of Veterinary Nursing, Personal Training, Sport Science and a Teaching Degree until I personally had to discover that I could turn what I loved into what I did.

Loves - The ocean, kids movies, Cartoons, Sci Fi, Fantasy movies, food of every kind, my fiance’, family, friends and dog Willow.

 

We want you :)

Look, a company is nothing without the amazing people who work for it but we don’t just want anyone. We want people who believe what we believe, we want people to help us build a future where kids are constantly adding to the list of things they know they could do. We want BIG KIDS who aren’t afraid to be themselves, we want people who still believe there’s magic in the world and they want to make sure that this magic and adventurous spirit never leaves children.

We want people to love what they do for us because its something they love too.

If this is you no matter what your expertise we want you BUT if you happen to be any of these people to that’s cool: Computer programmer, Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Marketer, Sales person, Peter Pan or Baymax.
