Geek 2 Chic was founded in 2010 and is produced by Microsoft in partnership with The Men's Store at Bloomingdale's Chevy Chase. During the show, "geeks" from large companies, nonprofit organizations, tech startups, and public service wear the latest fashions as they raise funds for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship. View last year's coverage HERE.
NFTE provides programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, recognize business opportunities, and plan for successful futures.
