National Challenge Winner, Brought to You LIVE!

On Thursday, October 12, NFTE’s top young entrepreneurs from across the nation will take the stage in New York City, pitching their business plans to judges and peers for the chance to win thousands of dollars.

If you can’t make it to New York, we still want you with us! On Thursday we’ll be creating a National Challenge hub on, where you can:

  • See in real-time who wins the daytime rounds of competition
  • Cast your vote for who should take home the evening’s grand prize
  • Watch the winner announcement in a livestream

On the afternoon of October 12, check

We’ll also be sending an email reminder on October 12 (if you don’t receive NFTE emails and would like to, you may subscribe here).

In the meantime, see who is leading the online elevator pitch competition and vote for your favorites! Special thanks to the Citi Foundation for their support of NFTE and the Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge both regionally and nationally.
