The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, also referred to as NFTE, is an international non-profit organization providing entrepreneurship training and education programs to young people from low-income urban communities. I support and will always encourage young kids to take this course as in school because it will set them up go succeed with their business once they get out and pursue their business fulltime.
I took the NFTE course when I was in high school senior year and it was one if the best programs I ever took. They teach you the basics of what it takes to be a Entrepreneur and ways you can be successful at it. One of the first things I remember them teaching me about an elevator pitch. Where your trying to in less than 5 mins to describe your product and try to make a sale with it. With an elevator pitch which I will talk about in a later post but you only have time to bring out the most important facts about your product or business. But NFTE is starting to expand now and even if you go to the website www.nfte.com you will read success stories from young adults that took the NFTE course and completed it and are now multimillionaires just from creating and selling a product. There is a lot more to a business than just creating a product or offering a service, business is also about customer service and making wise decisions. If you have kids or are a young student in school right now and your county/school offers this course I encourage you to sign up for it because this is a good start for starting a business and is all free of charge. Not to mention they do a lot of activities that involve famous and real world entrepreneur’s that talk to you answer questions and give advice on what you can do to make your business more of a success. I’ll have a article on my artist and business tools page soon talking about the NFTE programs and I’ll be giving a little more background information on them and the success stories of people that joined this program. As well as events you can attend too to show your support for upcoming Entrepreneurs. Thank you for reading and remember its never to late to start your own business.
