NFTE made several significant announcements at the White House Financial Literacy Summit . In addition, several NFTE graduates represented the organization in a variety of ways. See pictures from the event below.
- MasterCard is expanding its partnership with NFTE in order to help realize the goal of providing entrepreneurial training and resources to more than one million children by 2017. With an expanded grant of more than $1,000,000 for the 2012-2013 school year, MasterCard will support the modernization of NFTE’s core curriculum. MasterCard will also serve as founding sponsor of the inaugural NFTE 2.0 Innovation Incubator to be unveiled in St. Louis later to help youth develop innovative businesses.
- NFTE's new MakeYourJob.org will partner with AOL’s Cambio.com to launch a new content hub focused on helping teens create businesses and learn to make smart financial choices throughout their lives. The destination has the potential to reach 1 million teens monthly through the Cambio Network. AOL will also give a select number of teen entrepreneurs competing in NFTE’s National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge the opportunity to present their business ideas on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt-NY in September 2012.
