Three of NFTE New England’s top young entrepreneurs have qualified for nationals and are headed to the final rounds of the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge this fall:
Daniel Quackenbush, age 18, of Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School. Daniel’s business, What The Fish, is an app that promotes sustainable fishing practices by helping novice fishermen identify what they catch and determine what to do with it. Through innovative technology, What the Fish does not require Wi-Fi or a data connection, and therefore can be used on any body of water, be it ocean, lake or back country stream.
Keny Morales and Moses Ramirez, age 18, of Chelsea High School. Their business, Mindflow, is a company with a goal of helping people of all ages deal with their stress and anxiety in a healthy way without the use of technology. Mindflow products allow users to take back their awareness and attention and return to the present moment, especially in high stress situations.
