Heart of our Mission
NFTE guides the next generation of entrepreneurial thinkers through enriching student opportunities and exclusive alumni support services so they can launch or grow viable businesses or pursue other career pathways after graduation. Our learners embody NFTE’s mission to ignite the entrepreneurial mindset with unique learning experiences that empower students to own their futures.
NFTE connects with program alumni long after they complete their NFTE courses through our Alumni Network. Members have exclusive access to scholarships, internships, fellowships, free resources, and a help desk. NFTE offers continued professional development, as well as opportunities to network, earn certification, participate in events, pitch to potential investors, contribute as volunteers or partners, and access our incubator program. Alumni have even joined the NFTE team!
