The Next Generation Of Entreprenuers 

We help young entrepreneurs make their dreams a reality

What is a Next Gen Student?

Next Gen works with our partners at NFTE to activate the entrepreneurial
mindset in young people. We begin by igniting the imagination and leading students through the journey of creating and refining an original business concept. Students are guided by a certified teacher and supported by entrepreneurs and successful business mentors.

Students take the stage at NFTE’s renowned business plan competition series where they present their ideas to esteemed judges. Students earn recognition for the skills and concepts they are mastering, ultimately having the opportunity to earn the first-ever, industry-recognized credential to certify entrepreneurial mindsets and startup skills.
