  • A fascinating look at the latest generation of teen-focused media. The fact that this magazine is directed toward young women (pre-teen to teen), who have an entrepreneurial mindset, is a bell weather in its own right.

    A lot could go wrong here, but the concept is encouraging.

  • Very interesting idea, trying to marry teens with entrepreneurship. That's one thing that the big social media platforms have done well: By showcasing countless examples, they've empowered younger people to feel like they, too, can a) start meaningful cause campaigns and b) turn their interests into
