Last Friday January 10th, Babson College, the world leader in collegiate entrepreneurship education, hosted NFTE New England’s 8th Annual Youth Entrepreneurship Conference. With unemployment at an all time high and no signs of it getting better, NFTE New England has been part of the solution. It has served over 12,000 students from low income communities, helping them think and act like entrepreneurs. 

The event brought together nearly 450 NFTE students, alumni, teachers, volunteers and panelists for a day chock full of breakout sessions focusing on personal finance, college admissions and financial aid, presentation skills, and defining your entrepreneurial dream and passion.

Students had the opportunity to participate in a hack-a-thon, listen to a panel of successful NFTE alumni and receive individualized business plan coaching from over a dozen community volunteers. 88 students entered our 2nd annual One Minute to Pitch It competition with winners chosen by fellow NFTE students through a text-to-vote process. The day ended with a motivational keynote speech by NFTE alum Rodney Walker, the star of the film TEN9EIGHT. Throughout the day students received raffle tickets for engaging in the sessions, with the grand prize being an Xbox One, courtesy of our partners at Microsoft.

For the 8th year in a row, NFTE New England’s flagship student event went down in the books as a highlight of our programming year! Thank you to everyone who made this day possible, including our session volunteers from Bank of America, Corporate Executive Board, Youth CITIES, ProEdge Skills, Babson College, uAspire, Hollister Staffing, and our alumni CEOs Sabrina Boggio from Women’s Path to Employment and Angela Ivana of Makeup Art by Angela Ivana.

This year’s Youth Entrepreneurship Council was covered by the Boston Globe. Read the article here.
