About the 2024 event:

Presented by the Citi Foundation, EY, PayPal, and SAP, NFTE’s Founders Forum allows alumni entrepreneurs to advance their launch-ready or operational businesses in a variety of ways, as well as to prepare for investment with the support of a professional network and connect directly with potential investors.

Now in its fourth year, the Founders Forum supports these aspiring alumni entrepreneurs at a variety of business stages. The 2023-2024 cohort of Founders is currently engaged in mentoring relationships with business advisors while working toward their individual goals to acquire startup capital.

Founders Forum Pitch Competition:

Three Founders Forum finalists will pitch their business to an investment panel, vying for a portion of a $10,000 capital investment pool that can be used to advance their business as they see fit.
