Congratulations to the Design Entrepreneurs Class of 2012

James Talbot, Jeanette Nostra, Jess Wade and Mimi Plange

15 Design Entrepreneurs NYC participants had the opportunity to present their business plans to a panel of industry elite to show how a “mini-MBA” program created by FIT and the NYCEDC could strengthen their brand and help turn them into smarter, strategic New York designers. After invaluable critiques, James Talbot, Jes Wade and Mimi Plange were selected to receive additional support.

This four month program has now come to an end and we hope that the inaugural class of 2012 walked away with the entrepreneurial skills and knowledge to move forward with success along with new found relationships that will be fostered for years to come.

Learn more about all of the designers and be sure to look out for more news regarding next year’s program!
