Teaching Entrepreneurship in Every School

The Power of Ownership

At NFTE, we call our programs owner-entrepreneurship education to stress the power of ownership to create wealth.

The following is an excerpt from Steve Mariotti's article on TIME.com, "Why Every School in America Should Teach Entrepreneurship":

"Disadvantaged youth are seldom let in on the connection between ownership and wealth creation. I once asked a leading venture capitalist and philanthropist, who has donated millions to helping low-income children attend private schools, “What about teaching kids the ownership skills that made your fortune so they can become financially independent?”

He responded, only half-jokingly, “But then who would do the work?”

NFTE students don’t just learn record-keeping, sales, finance, negotiation, opportunity recognition, and marketing. They also learn how to properly value and sell a business, and how to build wealth through franchising, licensing and other advantages of ownership.

Owner-entrepreneurship education empowers young people to make well-informed decisions about their future, whether they choose to become entrepreneurs or not. Our students discover that, like every individual, they already own five powerful assets: time, talent, attitude, energy and unique knowledge of one’s local market. They learn to use these assets to create businesses and jobs, and build wealth in their communities."
