With multiple, complementary revenue streams

Skill Samurai taps into three children’s services growth segments:

EDUCATION & TUTORING

STEM enrichment programs like Skill Samurai are currently a combined $131 billion industry, and are projected to increase exponentially in the future.
The education and tutoring industry, specifically, is $7 billion, and is referred to as a “recession-resistant industry,” due to the fact that even in times of economic downturn, parents tend to prioritize their spending on goods and services for their children, especially those that impact their future.

SUMMER/SCHOOL VACATION CAMPS

Often dismissed as a low-revenue segment of the market, summer and school vacation camps are experiencing a significant increase in demand.
Working parents are constantly looking for high-quality camp experiences to supplement their child’s educational and emotional growth during school vacations. In the U.S., parents spend over $3 billion a year on kids camps, including STEM education programs, when school is not in session.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES

Every child has a birthday, and parents are increasingly looking into innovative and unique ways to celebrate.
Now a $25 billion industry, birthday parties at STEM education franchises like Skill Samurai are becoming big business, as parents continue to seek higher-value “edutainment” options for their children’s celebrations.
