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 Raynel B and Donavin L, Co-CEOs of Portal Skateboards.
Raynel and Donavin plan to provide their customers with the opportunity to express themselves through their custom-made skateboards by allowing customers to find their own unique design. Their company, Portal Skateboards, is focused on making each customer’s unique skateboard from start to finish. What qualifies them is that they both know how it feels to not have a voice. They are strong in the field of technology and are both experienced skateboarders. Raynel is currently a junior at University Heights High School and plans to continue to work hard to give skateboarders an opportunity to have their own unique style.
