NFTE Ventures is a community of New York City young professionals organized to benefit the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, or NFTE. NFTE’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.

NFTE Ventures’ partners provide financial, educational, and ancillary support to NFTE programs on a local, national, and international level.

I’ve worked with Keith through NFTE NY Metro over the past three years. He has contributed to NFTE’s programs as a guest speaker, business plan coach, competition judge, and, most importantly, as a Chair on NFTE NY Metro’s Junior Board. Keith is extremely enthusiastic about his work and is dedicated to ensuring that all NFTE students are successful. His candor enables him to connect with students and build meaningful relationships that impact their personal and academic development. Outside of the classroom, Keith’s thoughtful approach to planning enables Board initiatives to be executed in an organized manner, ensuring the long-time success of the committee’s efforts.
