ABOUT LEMONADE STAND
LEMONADE STAND is a Bushwick project that helps children 18 years old and younger start businesses without the high start up costs. The project helps children and teens brainstorm ideas, create feasible plans, implement strategies, and get their businesses off of the ground. LEMONADE STAND allows children and teens to explore entrepreneurship without tying them down to high-risk through a digital pop-up shop business model.
Through LEMONADE STAND young entrepreneurs learn the ins and outs of running a business by thinking like an owner and product developer. Children also learn how to spend and save wisely, how to plan for the future, and how to set goals and actively pursue them. LEMONADE STAND enables children and teens to dream big and turn those dreams into reality.
