Partner Spotlight: Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship
This summer, Big Green is supporting our Real Food Lab curriculum in Memphis high schools. We collaborated with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) to create a curriculum focused on teaching students entrepreneurship skills through the lens of real food.
NFTE works in 10 cities across the US to offer entrepreneurship-focused programs that prompt students to create and refine an original business concept. In the Real Food Lab Summer Practicum, students accomplish this by creating a business plan to address food access issues in their neighborhood. They even get the opportunity to launch and run their business (local farm stands) from June through August. This focus on the entrepreneurial mindset doesn’t only benefit future entrepreneurs, but all students as they enter an ever-changing economy.
