Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Donavin L and Raynel B, Co-CEOs of Portal Skateboards.
Donavin and Raynel plan to provide their customers with the opportunity to express themselves through their customer skateboard designs. They are interested in graphic design technology, making them uniquely qualified to build their business. Their company, Portal Skateboards, is focused on creating the customer’s perfect dream skateboard from start to finish. Donavin is currently a junior at University Heights High School, and he intends to attend college to study graphic design. He hopes to bring his business to the top and one day open a skate park for his local community.
