RecordGram-being-interviewedAlligatorZone®, where kids meet cool startups, is a nationwide face-to-face educational community platform that brings together entrepreneurs and school-age kids to help the youngsters get a peek into the minds of those who are creating the future.

AlligatorZone® offers event-programs, alternative learning environments and educational enrichment programs for children, in a shared experience with a parent or a guardian.

The mission of AlligatorZone® is to help families and educators prepare their kids for careers that do not yet exist in our fast-changing world.

The event programs are held for free in several public library locations, run usually by empowered kids and teens through a built-in youth leadership initiative called AlligatorZone Ambassadors. AlligatorZone’s event programs have showcased over 100 startups to nearly 1000 families with young kids (age 7-17) in Silicon Valley, Florida and Pennsylvania since 2014.

At the request of some parents seeking more than the occasional free event-programming, AlligatorZone® has also been offering premium offerings through enrichment workshops for families seeking to invest in a more enduring alternative learning environment beyond the event-programs. Called AlligatorZone® Academy, this series of premium workshops distills real-life lessons shared by the various startup founders featured in AlligatorZone’s nationwide event-programs into kid-friendly educational courses.

AlligatorZone® also offers its uplifting program within the school premises with the support of the PTA. These premium offerings and our sponsors help support our dream of bringing AlligatorZone® as a free event-program to youngsters in every community that welcomes such programs, while helping the youngsters prepare for careers that very likely don’t yet exist.
