WHAT IS TiE YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) is a global program dedicated to fostering future generations of industry leaders by teaching high school students the rewards and challenges of becoming an entrepreneur. TYE is an “Entrepreneurship Academy,” where student teams utilize modern skills and tools to build a concept using customer feedback, iteration, and lightweight business models.
The first part of the program is focused on the professional development of each participant. By starting with the development of the individual before the on-going development of the companies, each participant is able to nurture a professional persona that they can leverage during the program.
These topics include: Professional Communication, Creating a LinkedIn profile, Conducting an informational interview, Building a professional network
The program then enters a stage where participants pitch ideas, form teams and build companies. By leveraging the experiential learning environment created by building a company, participants grow their professional competencies while also taking and idea and creating a viable startup. The finalized curriculum and dates for each cycle is announced at the beginning of the program year and past topics have included: What is a Good Business Opportunity? Design Thinking, Finance, Marketing, Customer Validation, The Art of the Perfect Pitch. Sessions are lead by our TiE Young Entrepreneurs Instructor.
