Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) is driven by its mission to ignite the entrepreneurial mindset with unique learning experiences that empower students to own their future. NFTE builds startup skills in underserved youth from under-resourced communities to ensure their success and create a more vibrant, global society. We train an expert Entrepreneurial Teacher Corps to deliver the NFTE curriculum and we provide a robust volunteer network of entrepreneurs and successful business people to support classroom activities and student business plan competitions.

To explore NFTE’s courses, visit What We Do. When a school or organization partners with NFTE, educators receive the benefits of the Entrepreneurial Teacher Corps.
