Lemonade Day

Lemonade Day Calgary, a part of Lemonade Day National, is a free, experiential program that 
gives youth grades K-8 a taste of entrepreneurship. By starting their first business — a lemonade 
stand — youth gain the foundational skills to succeed in life and achieve their dreams.

Why Tiller brought
Lemonade Day to Calgary

Tiller is a multi-million dollar web and brand agency with 30+ employees serving software companies in Canada and the U.S. But it was founded by a teenager who got a taste of entrepreneurship and never looked back.

“I learned the basics of sales and profit margin on the golf course when I was 8 years old. My dad took my sister and I to the store and bought cans of soda. He taught us how to strategize and make a profit — 25 cents at a time. While seemingly insignificant at the time, these lessons I learned as a kid prepared me to launch Tiller at 19 years old. Years later, I’m still living my entrepreneurial dream! And I can’t think of a better way to give back than introducing the next generation to entrepreneurship and inspiring them to achieve their dreams too.”

We thought selling lemonade would be fun, and guess what? It is! Plus, it’s cool to have our own little business.

Josiah (Age 11), Isaiah (Age 9), and Elias (Age 7)
Lemonade Day Entrepreneurs, 2023

I want to put up a lemonade stand every year until I earn enough money to start my own business.

Shriya, Age 8
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

I met my goals. I learned A LOT. I have $20 for a toy, $60 for the Children’s Hospital, and lots to put in the bank.

Charlie, Age 6
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

I was a little scared no one would want to buy my lemonade, but I did it anyways. And I made up my own jokes to tell people.

Fern, Age 6
Lemonade Day Entrepreneur, 2023

The hardest thing I faced was talking to people. I felt shy at the beginning, and then I learned it was better to be brave and friendly.
