Yesterday, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship CEO Amy Rosen was named as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans by President Barack Obama.
The Baltimore Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge is a business plan competition, the culminating activity for our students. The students have spent the year or semester studying entrepreneurship and business practices and have created and built a business plan based around their ideas and interests.
Zoey W., Deja au Vintage and Asia M., Fortuante!
At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, Asia, Zoey, and their classmates sat down in what they thought was going to be another finance class. Instead they were introduced to the NFTE program. Neither Asia nor Zoey imagined that a few months later, they would earn recognition both inside and outside of Baltimore for their business plans. Both students competed at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge and were recognized by the Mayor’s Office on Minority and Women-Owned Business Development.
