Newsies Clothing Co.
Lang Dobson faced seemingly unsurmountable odds in high school, from dealing with temporary homelessness to academic challenges. Growing up in both New York and Miami, he was witness to what could happen to people without the proper guidance or motivation. With the help of NFTE and his own drive to create his own future, Lang decided to combine his love for art and desire to deliver more positive messages to our youth. The business that grew out of these two passions is an urban fashion company, Newsies Clothing Co. Lang has been innovative in his designs and marketing by collaborating with local artists to expand his reach and differentiate Newsies from its competition while also using his role models to promote the brand. In April 2014, Lang was honored as South Florida’s Entrepreneur of the Year at the NFTE Global Gala in New York City for his accomplishments in growing his business.
