MetLife has been a founding partner of the Emerging Young Entrepreneur (EYE) program since 2015 and has remained involved as program sponsorship has spread to several industries. EYE supports a pipeline of minority millennial entrepreneurs to become certified, innovative and successful business entrepreneurs with an interactive pre- and post-conference curriculum, along with five days of hands-on training and practical application. Entrepreneurs tackle important business issues as they move through assessments, think tanks, feasibility and execution stages of new venture creation. In 2019, 60% of program entrepreneurs won new business resulting from EYE program coaching, networking and access to partner corporations.
