NFTE is proud to offer the Founders Forum and Showcase to support alumni with viable startups by providing an opportunity for NFTE alumni entrepreneurs to continue to advance their business, prepare for investment and connect directly with potential investors.

The Forum’s Virtual Showcase will demonstrate the progress alumni businesses have made throughout the program and their milestones. Alumni will pitch to an audience and share their investment briefs with a panel of investors. Attendees will hear all twelve businesses pitch, and have a chance to visit their Expo Booths to learn about their businesses.
