The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s (NFTE) mission is to provide programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, to recognize business opportunities and to plan for successful futures.

Since our founding in 1987, NFTE has touched the lives of 500,000 young people globally and we currently have programs running across the U.S. and in twelve countries around the world, including China, Mexico and Israel.  In 2014, we join to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the founding of our Washington, DC chapter, which has served over 25,000 young people in the DC region. Currently serving 23 schools, the NFTE DC Region serves close to 1,100 young people annually.

Each year, NFTE celebrates our global impact by honoring top young NFTE entrepreneurs from all the communities we work in worldwide.  These young people have a chance to present their businesses to the guests and we feature a number of them during the evening.  Also in attendance are the amazing teachers on whom NFTE relies to bring our award winning program into resource-challenged schools globally, and this year an inspiring group of alumni from the NFTE Greater Washington region will be on hand to promote their own local businesses.   It is truly an evening that celebrates the power of entrepreneurship education in the most tangible way.
