About this Series

Brian Weisfeld, the Founder and Chief Squad Officer of The Startup Squad, an initiative dedicated to helping girls reach their potential, teams up with Fix-It Friends author Nicole C. Kear to present this middle-grade series about friendship and entrepreneurship.

Operating a lemonade stands is just the beginning for Resa, Harriet, Didi, and Amelia, as these savvy, business-minded schoolgirls learn that good business isn’t just about making a profit, but about making friends. Each book features tips from the Startup Squad and an inspirational profile of a girl entrepreneur.
