The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) has launched new challenges for the World Series of Innovation (WSI) for anyone ages 13 to 24. Participants will compete for cash prizes in seven innovation challenges, all focused on advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Each fall, a new set of WSI challenges is released leading up to Global Entrepreneurship Week. Thousands of young people from around the world team up to enter the online challenges and propose innovative solutions to address the challenges presented.

This competition is fostering the entrepreneurial mindset of the world’s youth and fostering the next generation of innovators. WSI allows young adults to apply business skills to global challenges while learning valuable entrepreneurial lessons. The competition emphasizes the GEW theme of education, and the importance of providing a space for innovative thoughts to be encouraged and practiced in the classroom and real-world settings.

Nominate a young person who might be interested at www.nfte.com/nominate and they will receive a special invitation to compete.

The annual competition is presented by NFTE and Citi Foundation. The open entry period runs from September 15 through December 15, 2021.
