According to Black Enterprise, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs partnered with Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), in April. NFTE is a nonprofit that educates at-risk youth on entrepreneurship.
Sean John, Comb’s fashion company, sponsors NFTE’s World Series of Innovation. This is an annual event that encourages youth to create innovative products and services. He has supported NFTE’s Dare to Dream Auction by offering up business advice/mentorship. Diddy has not only donated his time, but he also donated $250,000 to the nonprofit.
With him being the top Hip Hop artist on the Forbes list, I think we all can believe him when he offered these words of encouragement to the youth, “Hold onto your dreams, because hard work pays off.”
Good to see Diddy using his success to make a difference and continuing to inspire the youth!
