Global Showcase

About The Event

Each spring NFTE young entrepreneurs from around the world gather for an evening of awards, celebration, and networking. Top young entrepreneurs who have completed NFTE programs worldwide are named Global Young Entrepreneurs of the Year.

These honorees travel to Manhattan for an expert-led workshop on marketing and growing your business, followed by an evening awards reception and the opportunity to showcase and sell their products and services.

The day also honors NFTE educators and volunteers who help to activate the entrepreneurial mindset in young people every day.  It will take place on Thursday, March 22, 2018.


Last Year’s Event

Imagine a world where children with disabilities receive the tools to succeed, your affordable soup has no chemicals in it, and power lines are safer and stronger because they’re made of spider silk.

This is the world that we glimpsed at NFTE’s 30th anniversary Global Showcase, where top NFTE alumni put their businesses on display.

The day kicked off with a Mastercard-hosted workshop for the honored entrepreneurs, focused on storytelling for business growth and featuring guest speaker Matt Pajak, Head of Industry, Financial Services at Google, and Douglass Hatcher, Vice President, Executive Communications at Mastercard.

The evening celebration featured a panel of Forbes #30Under30 entrepreneurs, including NFTE-alum #30Under30 honoree Evin Robinson!
