Are you ready to empower young people to catch the entrepreneurial wave and ride it all the way to success?
NFTE Midwest, a regional office of Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, is here to help you do just that! With programs across a 7-state territory, our dedicated team works with public and private sector partners to bring experiential, project-based learning to young people in our local communities. NFTE’s highly trained Entrepreneurial Teacher Corps and dedicated Volunteer Corps support and coach NFTE learners, who are motivated by opportunities to compete for scholarships and seed capital.
By investing in the future of underserved youth, we’re creating a more vibrant society and positively impacting the lives of our young neighbors. Contact us if you’re interested in bringing NFTE programming to your neighborhood.
The Road to Nationals
Our premiere annual event is the NFTE Midwest Regional Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge finals, part of our region’s Youth Business Competition series. Our communities come together to celebrate amazing young entrepreneurs—as well as their teachers, school leaders and volunteer coaches who prioritize entrepreneurship education to launch the next generation of diverse entrepreneurial leaders. Attend this and other epic NFTE Midwest events to witness thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers in action. Watch as our region empowers young people by working alongside them on #TheRoadtoNationals.
