More about The Startup Squad
Girls mean business in The Startup Squad
, a new middle-grade series about friendship and entrepreneurship. Four girls learn that the recipe for success is tough to perfect—but making new friends might be the best way to learn. The back of each book features tips from The Startup Squad and an inspirational profile of a girl entrepreneur.
Author Brian Weisfeld has been building businesses his entire life. In elementary school, he bought ninety-five pounds of gummy bears and hired his friends to sell them. As a teen, he made and sold mixtapes (ask your parents what those are), sorted baseball cards (he got paid in cards), babysat four days a week after school and sold nuts and dried fruit (and more gummy bears) in a neighborhood store. As an adult, Brian helped build a number of well-known billion-dollar companies, including IMAX Corporation and Coupons.com.
Brian is the founder and chief squad officer of The Startup Squad, an initiative dedicated to empowering girls to reach their potential, whatever their passions. Brian lives in Silicon Valley and can often be found eating gummy bears with his wife while watching his two daughters sell lemonade from the end of their driveway.
