Local Perspective: Success in Dallas

December 11, 2012  |  3 comments

As we prepare for the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, NFTE Greater Dallas has a great deal to brag about! 

The school year is in full swing and have already held so many great events. Our first event took place on a rainy Saturday in September when we had over 100 students come together and work with several volunteers to review and revise their submissions for the World Series of Innovation. NFTE Dallas had over 150 submissions with two business ideas making it to the final round. Congratulations to all.

In October, two NFTE Dallas students Guadalupe Gamino, owner of Transparent Heel Holders and Oliver Gamez, owner of Why Can’t We Speak, headed to NYC to compete at the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge. Both students did an outstanding job of presenting and defending their business ideas and Guadalupe advanced to the Semi-Final Round as one of the top 12 student businesses in the country.  We are so proud of both our students!

We have been lucky enough to have had volunteers from Capital One Bank, Coca-Cola and Ernst and Young come to work with kids at three different NFTE Dallas schools.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and to kick-off Global Entrepreneurship Week – NFTE Greater Dallas hosted its 4th Annual Young Entrepreneurs Rally at The Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at UT Dallas on November 10th.  Over 500 students from Dallas ISD and Irving ISD attended the event and we were busting out at the seams with standing room only!  Students were wowed by former NFTE Dallas Business Plan Competition winners, given an inspirational speech from Shama Kabani President and CEO of Marketing Zen, and participated in breakout sessions ranging from Financial Literacy to Marketing Your Business in the Digital Age.

Best wishes from Dallas,

Laura and Karen
