Comerica Bank announced it is expanding its regional partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) to multiple markets within its geographical footprint. This $100,000 investment will provide entrepreneurship education programming to more than 25,000 middle and high school students in under-resourced communities who participate in NFTE’s Aspiring Entrepreneurs Program in California, Florida, Michigan and Texas.

“By igniting their entrepreneurial mindset, young people who complete NFTE’s program are more likely to engage in learning, achieve their educational and career goals, launch new businesses, have increased lifetime earnings, and feel greater job satisfaction,” said LaToya Rowell, Comerica National Community Affairs Manager. “Our increased support of NFTE is an invaluable investment in our future entrepreneurs, innovators, problem-solvers and leaders.”

“Comerica Bank’s extended partnership with NFTE is deeply appreciated,” said NFTE president & CEO Dr. J.D. LaRock. “The generous financial support not only enables us to fuel the futures of even more diverse entrepreneurial leaders around the world, but also underscore’s NFTE’s commitment to connecting learners to valuable coaches, mentors, and networks. We are also delighted to extend a warm welcome to LaToya Rowell, recognizing her exceptional leadership and dedication as she joins the NFTE Board of Directors.”
