 “Summer is the perfect time for kids to turn their passions into businesses. Creating a business teaches kids how to make money but more importantly helps them develop leadership and financial life skills that will serve them well in the future,” said Brian Weisfeld, The Startup Squad’s founder and co-author of The Startup Squad book series. “Think of our Startup Roadmap as a personal tour guide to help kids turn their business ideas into a summer of fun and lifetime of knowledge.”

The seventeen-page Startup Roadmap allows kids to plan everything about their businesses including: understanding their motivation, identifying their passion, determining the “It Factor” that will make their business stand out, doing customer research, setting prices, crafting sales pitches, creating advertising, and more. The Startup Roadmap is a kid friendly, focused business plan that sets up kid entrepreneurs for success.

The Startup Roadmap is a companion to PARTY PROBLEMS, the latest book in The Startup Squad children’s book series from Macmillan Publishing. Ideal for kids aged 7-14, The Startup Squad books follow the adventures of four sixth-grade girls navigating elementary school while starting businesses including lemonade stands, t-shirts, and wedding planning.
