My name is Isabel Hoppmann, and I am a 17-year-old living in San Francisco, California.
When adults asked me what I want to be “when I grow up,” I responded with “an entrepreneur” (even though I couldn’t spell it at the time). But as I started middle and high school, I was getting tired of waiting until I was “old enough.” I felt ready to start my own business now.
As I dreamt up new ideas for products and services, the reality of my young age set in, and I lost the confidence to pursue them. This inspired me to create a platform to help other girls who felt a little stuck like me, so I’m starting SWEET – Successful Women Entrepreneurs Everywhere Today.
My primary goal with SWEET is to inspire girls like you and me to start their companies right now because who says we have to wait until we are “old enough”? Experienced women entrepreneurs – including women who started companies when they were teenagers – will share advice, inspiration, and personal stories of success (and failure!) through interviews. These will appear on our website and social media pages so you can access them from anywhere, at any time!
SWEET is a start-up that I launched on June 20, 2020. In just a month, I have learned more than I ever thought I could about starting, building, and running a business, and I can’t wait to share all of that with you! So, what are you waiting for? Join below and realize how sweet it feels to start your own business!
See you soon,
