NFTE World Series of Innovation


The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) is pleased again to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015 (gewusa.org) with our featured event, the annual World Series of Innovation (WSI)!   This year’s WSI features challenges from Microsoft, Coca-Cola/VEB, Pitney Bowes Foundation, GoDaddy, MasterCard, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. We would like to invite all students, age 14-24, to participate and engage in this fun, creative, inventive process – all with a chance submitters to win great prizes! 

Anyone from any country can participate (in teams of 2-5), but submissions must be in English.

Here is a step by step guide for getting involved:
