Mission Accomplished: Viget Helps NFTE Online

FALLS CHURCH, VA - The National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) teaches entrepreneurship to young people from low-income communities to enhance their economic productivity by improving their business, academic, and life skills. To date, NFTE Greater Washington has trained over 12,000 youth entrepreneurs in the region. On May 11th, area business leaders and education partners will gather for NFTE-GW's annual gala, which features a Youth Trade Show in addition to a formal dinner and program.

Themed "Mission Possible," the 2006 Dare 2 Dream gala will honor one of Washington's most prominent business leaders, Ted Leonsis. With major sponsors such as Freddie Mac Foundation, America Online, and PricewaterhouseCoopers, the NFTE gala is one of the premier annual events in the region.

To help promote the gala, Viget Labs donated services to launch www.nftegw.com today. The site, which builds on the "Mission Possible" theme, provides event details and sponsorship opportunities and features a 4-minute video program which showcases NFTE's success with young entrepreneurs.

"We're proud to be part of the fantastic team working so hard in support of such a great cause. As an entrepreneur myself, helping to inspire entrepreneurship in young people through practical training and real world experience is really a thrill," said Viget Labs co-founder and CEO Brian Williams.
