We at the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) believe that every young person has the potential to take an original idea and turn it into a fully functioning business. Our curriculum provides students with the ability to recognize an entrepreneurial spark and the tools to help them take that spark of an idea and create a robust business plan. In an effort to continually improve our services for graduates of NFTE’s core curriculum, Startup Summer was created by NFTE New York Metro as an advanced entrepreneurship track program.

By Tim Lakey, St. Louis Entrepreneurship Teacher

I started teaching entrepreneurship classes a few years ago. While preparing for my lessons I ran across an organization called NFTE. The group seemed to be a great source of information for any entrepreneurship teacher. The only problem was that there was no NFTE support in the St. Louis area. So I found other sources to help me teach my classes.

As a current entrepreneurship student at the University of Southern California (USC) I strongly agree with NFTE’s belief that an entrepreneurship education is fundamental for all youth to better shape and prepare them for the future.
