WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?
There are lots of great books about entrepreneurship — The Lean Startup, Value Proposition Design, Business Model Canvas and The Startup Owner’s Manual, to name a few — but they are written with adults in mind.
At Quarter Zero, we specialize in fostering and promoting teen entrepreneurship, and we realized there was no handbook for that. This book is written to fill that gap. It’s designed specifically for high school students and their teachers, so that YOU can begin learning these skills and launching your own ventures right now. (If you want to.)
You might be thinking: That’s awesome! Let’s get started right now. Or maybe you’re thinking: I don’t know if this entrepreneurship stuff is for me. I just signed up for this class (or club) — I didn’t really want to start a business.
Either way, this book is for you. Trust us.
