Brian Weisfeld presents The Startup Squad series! Virtual Event!

Tuesday, May 4, 2021 - 4:00pm


Join this fantastic webinar and hone your entrepreneurial skills!  

Moderated by Diana Kapp, journalist and author of Girls Who Run the World: 31 CEOs Who Mean Business, the panel will include Brian Weisfeld, co-author of The Startup Squad series, as well as Simone Bridges, Sara Robinson and Emma Shelton, the three teen girlpreneurs profiled in each of the books in the series. Hear from these inspiring girlpreneurs how they built their businesses and learn from Brian how kids can start and run their own businesses.

Girls mean business in Party Problems, the third novel of The Startup Squad series about friendship and entrepreneurship that Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan, calls “A great read!” All four friends in the Startup Squad want to raise money—but when they can’t agree on what business to start next, they strike off on their own. Didi’s idea seems perfect: making place cards for a wedding. But after the wedding planner gets sick, Didi finds herself in charge of everything—and then the caterer cancels and the band goes missing! Didi’s business is turning from a dream to a disaster. Will the Startup Squad come together in time to save the wedding? Each book also features tips for kids starting or running their first businesses, plus a profile of a real-life girl CEO.

This event is presented by Biz Kid$, a national financial literacy initiative based on the Emmy Award-winning public television series where kids teach kids about money and business.
