Description

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.

TyE Program: October - January 2014 with 7 sessions of Saturday morning classes of 4 hours Teams are formed in January and teams will prepare a business plan for a start-up venture of their choice. January March Instruction and mentoring continue on Saturday mornings for guidance March Mock Presentation April Final New York Presentation June Global/National Competition Teams will meet as often as they need to develop the winning business plan. The NY competition winner selection and prize award takes place in April 2014 The winning team will receive a CASH PRIZE and will take part in the national competition in June 2014 The national level competition gives fantastic exposure and recognition Participating in the competition gives excellent real life experience

There is a nominal fee for program participants, and students and their parents will need to make a commitment to attending at least 6 of the 7 Saturday sessions which run through January 2014.
