NFTE BizCamps® are two-week intensive entrepreneurship programs designed to unlock the entrepreneurial mindset in youth as each participant builds a full plan for an original business idea of their own. Students cover all aspects of what it takes to start a business including learning about opportunity recognition, market research, sales and business financials. Through the process and a series of project-based learning activities integrated in the program they learn to think and act like entrepreneurs – see an opportunity, act on it, persevere and learn from setbacks and change course in ways that lead to success. BizCamps® culminate in a business plan competition judged by local high profile entrepreneurs and executives.
