About

NFTE’s World Series of Innovation (WSI) celebrates global entrepreneurship and the power of your idea.

Take on a challenge

Learn how to recognize opportunities and use your creativity to solve problems.

Every fall, NFTE (that's the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship!) gets ready to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week by launching a new set of challenges in the NFTE World Series of Innovation. We invite young people to think big and come up with ideas for tackling the most important issue of our time: what society can do to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Entrepreneurs and innovators ages 13 to 24 are urged to put their creativity to the test by coming up with solutions to advance the Global Goals.

Grow your mindset

Practice design thinking and develop your entrepreneurial mindset.

Research shows that developing the entrepreneurial mindset — a set of skills including initiative, flexibility, creativity, opportunity recognition, future orientation, problem solving, and critical thinking — uniquely prepares young people for lifelong success.
