Business Plan Competition Management
Because creating and pitching a business plan is such a cornerstone in students’ entrepreneurial journey, NFTE devotes resources to offering every student the opportunity to participate in a business plan competition. Teachers receive a detailed toolkit guiding the implementation of a classroom competition, as well as support from NFTE staff, who help to manage the competition and secure volunteer coaches and judges from the business community. NFTE-run regional and national-level competitions offer high-performing students the opportunity to win funding and recognition on their entrepreneurial journey.
Business plan coaches, competition judges, and guest speakers from local communities play an integral role in showing young people a world beyond their circumstances. NFTE staff cultivates relationships with entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial professionals and arranges for their participation in the classroom as well as at NFTE program events.
