NFTE President & CEO Amy Rosen's update from Monte Carlo:
NFTE’s work was feted by the top leadership of Ernst & Young, last night. Zoe Damacela, a proud alum, and I had the honor of representing NFTE at the official welcoming reception. The royal family of Monaco hosted it to welcome everyone to the Ernst & Young Global Entrepreneur of the Year Competition.
Hayley Hoverter, NFTE’s 2011 National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge winner, will participate in the White House Science Fair tomorrow, Tuesday, February 7. Sweet (dis)SOLVE , Hayley’s creation, is a beverage sweetener made from organic sugar wrapped, not in paper, but in a soluble organic starch that melts into your drink without adding calories, odor or taste.
NFTE alumni Ariell Buckingham and Kyle Wong just returned from Saudi Arabia where they served as panelists at the Global Competitiveness Forum. Both participated in the “Innovation to Generation” panel.
