SFI provided event management, public relations and social media services for Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) for their Dare to Dream Gala in April, 2010. NFTE provides entrepreneurial educational programs to young people from low-income communities throughout the United States and worldwide. By partnering with local schools and universities, NFTE students conceptualize and actually start their own businesses. SFI used multiple communication outlets to promote awareness and support for NFTE. This outreach ranged from developing an interactive website to writing and distributing press releases. SFI also invited Washington’s top bloggers, tweeters and social media gurus to get the word out about NFTE and the outstanding students who represent this organization. In addition, SFI created and produced several videos for the dinner program and the entire evening was recorded for future webcasting.
