About TYE: TYE (TiE Young entrepreneurs) is a TiE Global initiative dedicated to chapters integrating classroom sessions, mentoring and business plan competition aimed at High School students (grades 9-12). TYE is designed to teach high school students entrepreneurship and leadership skills. The TYE Global program was designed for a nine-month period, which includes class room instruction, mentoring support for business plan development, and culminates with business plan competition phases.
To launch this program we are holding an information session the morning of Saturday, October 26th. This will be an opportunity to hear more details of the program and how the competition will work, and to meet some of our volunteer staff!
The TyE Business Plan Competition lies at the very heart of what TiE is about. It brings together experience, students, creativity, aspirations for the future and generosity into one program. The TyE program will start in fall 2013 and run for 9 months to June 2014.
