Inspiring Girls Through Enterpreneurship - THE START UP SQUAD SERIES PRIZE PACK #GIVEAWAY


The StartUp Squad Prize Pack Contains a Startup Squad tote bag, earrings, bookmark, sticker, and temporary tattoo, and a $20 gift card to Earrings by Emma -- a small business started by girlpreneur Emma when she was just 8 years old!

Published in May, Party Problems (The Startup Squad #3, Macmillan, ages 8-12) continues the story of a diverse group of young friends who learn to work together to overcome the unique challenges of running their own business. Along with compelling stories, each book delivers information, inspiration and aspiration for the next generation of female CEOs, with tips for kids starting or running their first businesses, and a profile of a real-life girl CEO.

The Startup Squad was founded on the belief that even a simple lemonade stand can help girls develop a growth mindset, learn to approach challenges with grit, and get comfortable with risk failure—and learning to start again. These are lessons that will serve them well in life regardless of the path they choose. In 2021, Brian will be working with influential organizations, such as Girls Inc of NYC, Entre-Ed: The Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education, and girls scout troops across the nation to continue donating books to underprivileged kids so cost will not be a barrier to accessing this valuable resource. To date, more than 10,000 copies have been donated.

Girls mean business in a brand-new series about friendship and entrepreneurship that Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan, calls “A great read!”

All the great leaders had to start somewhere. And Teresa (“Resa” for short) is starting with the lemonade stand competition her teacher assigned to the class―but making it a success is going to be a lot harder than Resa thinks.

The prize: line-skipping tickets to Adventure Central. The competition: Val, Resa's middle school nemesis. And the biggest obstacle to success: Resa's own teammates. Harriet is the class clown, Amelia is the new girl who thinks she knows best, and Didi is Resa's steadfast friend―who doesn't know the first thing about making or selling lemonade. The four of them quickly realize that the recipe for success is tough to perfect―but listening to each other is the first step. And making new friends might be the most important one...

The back of each book in this middle-grade series features tips from the Startup Squad and an inspirational profile of a girl entrepreneur!
