NFTE is governed by a diverse National Board of Directors that includes business and education leaders, successful entrepreneurs, philanthropists and community advocates—all of whom evidence deep commitment to youth development and entrepreneurship education. The Board of Directors has full strategic and fiduciary responsibility and it provides the leadership and guidance that helps NFTE achieve its goals.
Additionally, NFTE is supported by high-level Advisory Boards across the country. Advisory Board Members play a vital role helping NFTE fulfill its mission by providing leadership and guidance as we expand our footprint in major metro areas. They also amplify our fundraising and advocacy efforts, work to deepen community engagement, and drive volunteerism in their communities.
Board Members are NFTE’s most ardent volunteers and supporters! They can be spotted at all of our events and competitions—and seen in action throughout the year, not just participating in board meetings but also working directly in the field. Our Board Members are exemplars of active service, volunteering as competition judges, appearing as guest speakers in classrooms, hosting field trips, and working one-on-one with students and alumni as business plan and pitch coaches.
Please see the Board Leadership page for a full roster of NFTE Board Members.
