After many wonderful sessions coaching high schools students on unlocking their entrepreneurship spirit with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) program, it has been amazing to see each student flourish. We were extremely excited to join NFTE's Midwest Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge and meet with the NFTE team, students and teachers for the first time, in person. Presented by EY, Horizon, Ingredion and Slalom with signature support from GSTV and associate support from the Citi Foundation, this signature event featured the top teen finalists presenting their unique business plans to a distinguished panel of judges. Additionally, one of the students from HBK's classroom was selected to participate in a fast-pitch competition and practice sharing his idea as his road to nationals begins and he gears up for the National Competition in New York City.
