I’m excited to be attending this event tonight, where the Academy has teamed up with NFTE (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship) to recognize youth entrepreneurs! Bal Theatre @ 14808 East 14th Street in San Leandro is the venue.
After the recognition ceremony, there will be a special screening of the documentary Ten9Eight – Shoot for the Moon. This is a thought-provoking film which tells the inspirational stories of several inner city teens (of differing races, religions, and ethnicities) from Harlem to Compton and all points in between, as they compete in an annual business plan competition run by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Join me?
