Last Week: Patty Alper – Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship
Our speaker last week was Patty Alper, president of the Alper Portfolio Group, a marketing and consulting company, and a board member of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Patty described her career in the construction industry and her approach to building a company, and how it led to an interest in mentoring programs in schools. NFTE sponsors yearlong programs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers in underserved schools. NFTE has become an international non-profit organization providing entrepreneurship training and education programs to young people from low-income urban communities.
