These high schoolers have had amazing entrepreneurial success.
Andrew Rosenstein and Sophia Gross were diagnosed with dyslexia at a large public school. After switching to AIM Academy, which specializes in kids with learning disabilities, they excelled in their studies.
The two wanted to help other students with learning disabilities, so the teen entrepreneurs founded Opportunity Rise. Their business raises awareness for students with learning disabilities and provides scholarships, so more students can benefit from specialized learning.
Andrew and Sophia started by selling clothing at their school. When that succeeded they branched out to other schools. The students at other schools started Opportunity Rise chapters and also sold the clothing. The money raised funds the business and provides scholarships. For the future they have planned an online network for kids with learning disabilities.
