About Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)
The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship‘s mission is to provide programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, to recognize business opportunities and to plan for successful futures.

Founded in New York City in 1987 by Steve Mariotti, a former entrepreneur turned high school math teacher in the South Bronx, NFTE began as a program to prevent dropouts and improve academic performance among students who were at risk of failing or quitting school.

The invite-only afterparty will be done in partnership with Startup DC‘s Entreprelooza! and will begin at The Brixton on U St. at 9pm.
