The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) is back with a re-vamped challenge for high school DECA members: the FIDM Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow Challenge. As the global market continues to evolve, entrepreneurial thinking skills, such as innovation and problem-solving, are becoming even more vital to success. This competition is an exciting opportunity for students to channel their inner entrepreneur by generating a new clothing, beauty, home, health, food or entertainment concept and showcasing their prototype in a brief YouTube presentation.
