American Portfolios has been a staunch supporter of VE since 2014, judging competitions, mentoring students, providing internships, and hosting and sponsoring events. This year, the company sponsored the 2021 Long Island Regional Business Plan Competition Finals, and gave more students than ever the opportunity to learn from CEO Lon T. Dolber through a virtual address and Q&A session. On March 17, American Portfolios published a press release to celebrate this sponsorship and the continuation of a now eight-year-long partnership.
“This virtual competition reasserted the fact that our society desperately needs the perspective and imagination of these young people for today’s solutions. I am ecstatic to both witness and empower these students as they begin the lifelong journey of molding dreams into reality—dreams that I believe will find our world a better place.” – Competition Judge Darius Williams, former educator & current executive director, Life Arts, Inc. (an organization sponsored by AP)
