"Girl Starter" focuses on a group of young women looking to launch their own business. The ladies, ages 18 to 24, compete for a grand prize of $100,000 in funding and services. The series follows six steps of early-phase business building, from idea formation through pitch, and features entertaining challenges and surprise guest stars. Girl Starter is a transmedia and technology company that provides platforms to highlight young females in entrepreneurship and business leadership. It's the brainchild of Julie Collins, who created the concept when she was 16 to "reach girls while they are moldable." Becoming a boss, the company says, should be as fun as being one.
