Media Mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs announced his support of global non-profit, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). The network that “inspires young people from low-income communities to find their paths to success.”
The organization held the finals for their 2013 National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge Finals in New York City on Thursday (Oct 3rd) evening with an appearance and generous donation from Diddy.
While speaking the event, he shared this with the crowd:
I am honored to partner with NFTE on this initiative because I am extremely proud of the work they do every day, helping over 500,000 young people reach their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs. I believe all young people should be given the opportunity to be successful and to pursue their passions and NFTE gives all kids the tools they need to be the CEOs of their future.
Diddy also spoke with the finalists behind-the-scenes at the event – giving them valuable insight on his life as a mover and shaker in the entertainment industry. Click through the gallery for more from the evening.
