NFIB president and CEO, Todd Stottlemyer, says the NFIB/Visa USA partnership is a solid step towards promoting careers in entrepreneurship to more high school and college aged students. "The U.S. economy and our rapidly changing world of new ideas, products and technologies depend upon the entrepreneurial spirit flourishing in America."

"Encouraging America's youth to see the importance of entrepreneurship is incredibly important to Visa," says Rhonda Bentz, vice president, Visa USA. "One of the best ways to inspire our youth to consider careers as entrepreneurs is to introduce the skills needed to succeed at an early age."
In addition, Visa USA has agreed to again cobrand the top five scholarship awards to young entrepreneurs distributed though NFIB YEF's Young Entrepreneur Scholarship Awards Program. This is the fourth straight year Visa USA has been the primary corporate sponsor of the scholarship program.
