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 and top teachers in NFTE programs across the U.S. and abroad are named Global Enterprising Educators 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 volunteers, who help to activate the entrepreneurial mindset in young people every day. Top volunteers are named in each of our regions, and national awards are presented for Individual Volunteer of the Year and the Corporate Volunteer of the Year.
The 2019 Global Showcase will take place on Thursday, March 21, 2019.
