Congratulations to this year's Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2012 Alumni Fund Scholarship Recipients! Ernst & Young generously supports these young NFTE graduates, and NFTE is sincerely grateful. Some of this year's scholarship recipients have dreams of becoming entrepreneurs, investors and community leaders. Discover the schools they are attending and where they took the NFTE program.
Where are new jobs coming from? NFTE supporter Ernst & Young knows: Entrepreneurs are driving 30% job growth at the more than 600 companies represented by E&Y’s 2012 US Entrepreneur Of The Year® program. That compares to negative overall U.S. job growth. Revenue growth is even greater at 48% compared to an American average of 5.6%.
What’s it like to teach a winning young entrepreneur at a NFTE school? Two NFTE Greater DC teachers, Stephanie Harmony and Erin Cribbs, share their experiences in this interview with Pivotal Plays and the importance of youth entrepreneurship. Plus, both teachers talk about why NFTE’s entrepreneurship programs are unique and the importance of mentors for young entrepreneurs.
NFTE made several significant announcements at the White House Financial Literacy Summit. In addition, several NFTE graduates represented the organization in a variety of ways. See pictures from the event below.
