It’s been a week since the end of the World Economic Forum in Davos. For NFTE it’s an opportunity to spread our message of entrepreneurship for all youth to new global stakeholders. However, we also have the wonderful opportunity to spend time with key partners, including MasterCard Worldwide, Ernst & Young, and Microsoft.

Each person and organization takes away something different from the intense days of networking, dialogue, and learning. Yet, the work is far from done.  Here at the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship we must bring entrepreneurship education to all youth, and that will take enormous coordination among a variety of stakeholders. It can help solve the crisis of global youth unemployment and be a critical part of creating long-term economic stability.

Our friends at MasterCard are amazing supporters of NFTE. During the WEF we had the opportunity to spend time with Vice Chair Walt Macnee who, as a former educator, has many thoughtful perspectives and ideas about how the business and NGO communities can work together to improve the world.  Here’s a link to some of his Davos blogs – worth reading!
