Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we spoke with Brian Weisfeld of The Startup Squad

Brian Weisfeld started The Startup Squad when his oldest daughter was 8 years old. He watched her struggle to sell Girl Scout cookies and then fumbled around trying to run a charity bake sale with a friend. While she had enthusiasm, she didn’t know what to do while she stood at the end of our driveway, surrounded by delicious baked goods.

A few months later, while reading books with his girls, he got frustrated with the lack of empowering influences marketed to girls. This made him decide to act to create a brand for girls that would inspire and nurture their entrepreneurial spirit. And so, The Startup Squad was born.

The Startup Squad is about empowering girls with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can realize their potential, whatever their passions. It is about helping them become more than they can imagine by exploring entrepreneurship at an early age. It is about teaching them basic business skills and helping them learn grit, a growth mindset, and how to fail, and then start again, and again.

Today, you will learn about Brian Weisfeld, the Startup Squad, Brian's girls and more.
