In partnership with school districts in Boston, Chelsea, Framingham, Lawrence, Lowell, Malden, New Bedford, Quincy, and Worcester, MA, Providence, RI, Hartford, CT, and Burlington, VT, NFTE trains teachers to engage students from low-income communities as entrepreneurial thinkers using our innovative, hands-on curriculum.
Since 1991, NFTE has provided more than 16,000 students across New England with the tools and mindset necessary to prepare for successful futures in school, college and the workforce.
Currently we work with nearly 1,000 students across New England each year and with YOUR help, we can double this number. Click here to learn more about how you can get involved.
Coffee, bagels and business plans were scattered across 32 workstations in Lowell High’s Little Theater on the morning of November 29, 2015 as 65 Babson College graduate students and 175 Lowell entrepreneurship students came together for a day of coaching and idea generation.
All 240 students worked together to reach one common goal: to further their entrepreneurial journey. The Lowell High students are enrolled in the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)’s course, which focuses on the entrepreneurial mindset, 21st century career-development skills and methods for starting a business. They each received valuable feedback on their business ideas and received instruction on how to recognize entrepreneurial opportunity all around them.
The Babson students – enrolled in the Masters of Science in Management in Entrepreneurial Leadership (MSEL) - had an opportunity to hone their skills coaching and mentoring young entrepreneurs on critical success factors such as identifying opportunity potential and developing successful business models.
