TiE SV brought back TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) program in 2018, with some funding from BNY Mellon. The TYE program is a Global program fostering future generations of entrepreneurs by teaching high school students the rewards and challenges of becoming an entrepreneur. TYE is designed to teach high school students entrepreneurship and leadership skills. Honoring the grant agreement, six kids from underserved communities were admitted to the program. At TiEcon 2019, TiE SV also had a very popular Youth track and Youth Pavilion at the Expo to encourage young kids and foster business discussions. As a result of such year-round engagement, TiE SV has secured grant commitments for the program.
