Written by Julie Kantor, Executive Director NFTE DC Region

In the beginning it started out with over 900 youth in DC, Maryland and Virginia schools, as well as several charter schools.  They then went through 60+ hours of training on how to start and operate their own small businesses.  Most of the students received seed capital to bring the book-theory to life and purchase their own inventory.  And students from all over the region have showcased their new businesses in their schools and with most of them turning a profit.  In the end these students compete to take their businesses to the next level.

We’re excited to announce that this semester our NFTE Los Angeles program office has a very special partnership taking place in Mr. Jaquias’ 10th grade class at the Downtown Magnets High School.  These lucky students were specially chosen to participate in the first ever Social Venture Competition. Through this competition they will learn the essential skills and knowledge needed to start their own business through social entrepreneurship.  What is social entrepreneurship you ask? Social entrepreneurship is an entrepreneur that is committed to making a difference in the world through their business in addition to making a profit.
