Product description

Review

FEATURED ON NPR'S ALL THINGS CONSIDERED

"Kapp's trailblazing CEOs are humble about their formative years, frank about the daunting challenges they encountered, and relentlessly encouraging." --Forbes

"Just reading these stories will give you a confidence boost! Here are 30 incredible women with plenty of secrets to share; they'll show you that your journey may have bumps, and it probably won't be a straight path, but if you keep going you will make amazing things happen." -Claire Shipman, author of NYT bestseller The Confidence Code for Girls.

"Girls Who Run the World is a modern-day encyclopedia of the women who are changing the world today, period." --Sophia Amoruso, Founder & CEO, Girlboss, a media company dedicated to empowering women in business, and author of NYT bestseller #Girlboss.

"Diana Kapp brings us one of the most important gifts of all: inspiration for the next generation to create lives fueled with equal parts purpose and ambition. This book is a joyful testament to the power of girls, the power of immigrants, and the unlimited potential for young people everywhere to dream boldly."--Laurene Powell Jobs, Founder, Emerson Collective and College Track.

"All girls should dare to dream big, and Girls Who Run the World gives them the tools to not only achieve those dreams, but to change the world while they're doing it."--Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

"Girls Who Run the World is a woman-to-woman playbook that spotlights bold businesswomen who have achieved success and done it in their own way. In these pages, Kapp reminds all women that if we work hard as one team and support one another, there is no limit to how far we will go." - Former Secretary of State, Madeleine K. Albright

"The startup community needs more female and underrepresented founders. Diana Kapp's book is sure to inspire future female founders from all backgrounds to start companies that will change the world. These profiles will give them the tactics and conviction to take a risk on their idea and create a product people will tell their friends about."--Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator and Co-chairman of OpenAI

"The book allows us to imagine success by seeing the Girl CEOs accomplish it."--Gitanjali Rao, age 14, 2017 winner of Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge

"Relentlessly upbeat... the final chapters offer general encouragement and guidance on creating a business plan and elevator pitch, managing finances, and other necessary skills." --Kirkus Reviews

"The empowering tone will inspire girls to dream big, then break barriers in the business world. Accessible for readers across middle and high school." --School Library Journal
