When it comes to the ever growing realm of purpose-led entrepreneurship, teens don't seem to occupy a big part of the conversation itself and these social businesses for teenagers target them directly. The majority of the innovations in this top list are service-oriented, that is, revolve around something like offering financial education (Lily Lapenna's MyBnk is a great example for that) or tech and entrepreneur programs so that they can create their own impact in the industry.
There is, however, a difference between social businesses for teenagers and social businesses made by and for teenagers themselves. Linking the developmental process and early stage of a venture, i.e. linking investors with young people, can offer some potential possibility in the gap of funding.
