Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) announced a partnership with The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) to deliver its entrepreneurship education curriculum to over one million young leaders that are among tGELF’s network of partner schools and organizations. NFTE’s award-winning, project -based curriculum activates the entrepreneurial mindset in youth and builds their knowledge about business startup, with a focus on youth from under-resourced communities.

For 27 years, the international nonprofit NFTE has empowered youth and has played a pivotal role in entrepreneurship education using a proven program that develops the entrepreneurial mindset. The entrepreneurial mindset is a set of characteristics such as, creativity, collaboration, and comfort with risk that can be cultivated in young learners.

“We are honored to join forces with tGELF to scale our work and provide the entrepreneurship education, attitudes, and skills that will cultivate the productive and successful young leaders of tomorrow,” said Shawn Osborne, President and CEO of NFTE. “The entrepreneurial mindset is an increasingly important part of a well-rounded 21st Century education that prepares our youth for future personal, community, and global challenges.”

tGELF is committed to building a community of ethical and altruistic young leaders. NFTE and tGELF will work together to provide an educational experience and entrepreneurial curriculum that is culturally aligned to the APAC region. Through this partnership, tGELF commits itself to ensuring emerging leaders, in India and throughout the Asia Pacific region, will have access to the benefits of entrepreneurship education.

“We share NFTE’s commitment in preparing the next generation of leaders to be able to act as ethical global citizens in the face of daunting global issues,” said Shiv Khemka, Founder of tGELF. “We are thrilled that our partnership will provide opportunities to support our young leaders with the needed business tools and attitudes to help them reach their full potential.”
