If you’ve been reading for a while, you know by now that I get very excited when I come across great programs that help the growth of our youth in Miami. The nonprofit, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, helps advance and empower our young entrepreneurs in the world of high-end interior design as well as many other industries.

I am excited to announce that world-renowned tennis player and entrepreneur Venus Williams will be participating in this program this year!

Venus Williams will be participating in the Ignite Entrepreneurship Launch Benefit on May 2nd, at The Palm Court in Miami Design District. Williams will be entered into the “Hour with an Entrepreneur Online Auction,” where guests will have the opportunity to bid on a chance to meet with South Florida’s top entrepreneurs.

NFTE’s Ignite Entrepreneurship Launch Benefit will kick off the Ignite Entrepreneurship series of events offered in affiliation with eMerge Americas, a five-day technology conference in Miami that unites the elite and brightest from the startup and funding ecosystems.

All proceeds will support more than 3,500 young entrepreneurs throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

I am proud to say this event will be taking place in Miami and helping to enrich this great city!
