Sarnicola Foundation Grants $30,000 to Support Young Entrepreneurs

Helping South Florida youths choose a different path to success is the goal of a $30,000 grant by the Sarnicola Foundation to the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship.

“We feel that our donation to the NFTE was one of the best ways we could give youth a real shot at becoming successful entrepreneurs,” said Sarnicola Foundation President Nick Sarnicola. “It was also a way for us to bring new and creative business ideas to the city of Miami and fulfill our personal mission of honoring young innovators.”

The $30,000 grant will be used to teach business and financial concepts to area youths and to help develop students’ entrepreneurial ideas via NFTE’s South Florida Youth Business Plan Challenge and Start-Up Summer Camp.

“We are blown away at the talent, charisma, and amount of time and energy invested by these young business plan competition contestants,” said foundation Vice President Ashley Sarnicola. “There is no doubt that many of them will become extraordinary entrepreneurs and make a long term positive impact on our community.”

The Sarnicola Foundation, based in Miami Beach, was established in 2011 to help support young entrepreneurs across the nation. Its mission is to foster entrepreneurship via mentorship and scholarships to young, aspiring entrepreneurs.
