Startup Squad

About The Startup Squad (The Startup Squad #1)

THE STARTUP SQUAD | Imprint | On sale 5/7/2019 | Ages 8-12 | 176 pages |

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!

About The Startup Squad: Face the Music (#2)

Startup Squad

FACE THE MUSIC | Imprint | On sale 5/5/2020 | Ages 8-12 | 192 pages |

Girls mean business in The Startup Squad: Face the Music, the second novel in the series, which Kirkus Reviews calls “an enjoyable and diverse story highlighting friendship, entrepreneurship, and perseverance.”

Harriet’s brothers are hoping to enter a local battle of the bands. Winning could get them on a reality TV show! But low funds have left them without even a working guitar. The Startup Squad jumps into action―and quickly pulls together a plan to sell T-shirts to raise money.

The girls have a lot of great ideas―until everything starts to go wrong. When all the problems start turning disappointed fans into an angry mob, the girls realize they have to get back into the groove before the band members―and the Startup Squad―break up for good!

Each book in this middle-grade series by Brian Weisfeld and Nicole C. Kear also features tips for kids starting or running their first businesses, plus a profile of a real-life tween girl CEO.

About The Startup Squad: Party Problems (#3)

PARTY PROBLEMS | Imprint | On sale 5/4/2021 | Ages 8-12 | 176 pages

Girls mean business in the third novel of this 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 in this middle-grade series by Brian Weisfeld and Nicole C. Kear also features tips for kids starting or running their first businesses, plus a profile of a real-life tween girl CEO.

Does your child have a business?

Girls ages 6 to 16 who run their own business can sign up at The Startup Squad website to be featured in the Girls Mean Business Gallery, plus check out resources such as The Ultimate Business Plan for Kids and the Entrepreneurship Activity Kit!

Both of my girls read these books and they loved them. So much so they have decided they want to start their own business. The best part behind this is they decided they are going to do it together. I think this is a great learning experience that is entertaining for them as well!
