Diddy Donates $250,000 for Young Entrepreneur Education

Sean “Diddy” Combs is giving back. The richest man in hip-hop has donated his time and money to empower young entrepreneurs.

In partnership with the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Combs educated tomorrow’s CEOs on how to achieve their dreams. He shared tips on how to run a business and approach life in an entrepreneurial way, and presented the non-profit organization with a check for $250,000.

“I am honored to partner with NFTE on this initiative because I am extremely proud of the work they do every day, helping over 500,000 young people reach their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs,” said Diddy. “I believe all young people should be given the opportunity to be successful and to pursue their passions and NFTE gives all kids the tools they need to be the CEOs of their future.”

The Bad Boy mogul continues to grow his empire. On Oct. 21, he will launch his Revolt TV network to Comcast and Time Warner subscribers in L.A., New York, and Chicago.

Diddy recently topped Forbes’ Cash Kings list of hip-hop’s top moneymakers with earnings of $50 million in the past year.
