– Spend, Save, Sow, Share
Giving a new generation the tools to grow in financial literacy, Podcasts, videos, interviews & more!📱
📖 The nickname ‘money tree’ actually comes from an ancient Chinese story, in which a poverty-stricken farmer prays for wealth but instead comes across a single Pachira aquatica plant. Impressed by its beauty, he plants more for others to see – and soon becomes one of the wealthiest men in the area by selling them!🤩💸
We chose the name Bonsaï because, literally translated, it means ‘planted in a container’ – we like to think it’s a great analogy for starting a small business🤯 So, if you’re interested in branching out (sorry) and expanding your financial knowledge, follow us! We have some great content coming soon, ranging from tips & tricks to podcasts, panels and more🥳

The Young Entrepreneurs Club
When there are very few entry points for a discussion about money for young people
Along with the over-arching assumption that kids are irresponsible and incapable of discussing the subject of money, you have before you the ingredients for a social tragedy.
The notion of the disinterested youth is challenged in the Young Entrepreneurs Club. Simply put, young people are starved of opportunities to discuss this monumental life subject and in our experience respond constructively when offered the opportunity to do so.
These Clubs aim to support young people in building potential, because taking action in response to the subject of money should be preceded by learning about its effect in the world around us.
We run a number of independent clubs in countries around the world, fast and flexible, these Clubs work hard at the point of need with five very real and specific ambitions to:
- To provide a platform for its members to save.
- To provide an opportunity for members to borrow.
- To promote networking.
- To allow members to share business ideas.
- To share investment opportunities.
Members receive training and support annually. Particularly suitable to run as a Business Club for Women. Learn more about how you can set up a Club up in your country today.
