TiE Young Entrepreneurs is a global program aimed at fostering our future generation of entrepreneurs. TYE focuses on teaching entrepreneurship to high school students and helping them discover the rewards and challenges of becoming an entrepreneur.
During the program, the students form teams, go through classroom session modules focused on different aspects of business and entrepreneurship, then write their own business plans.
Teams compete at the chapter level Finals first, and the winner of each chapter goes on to the Global Competition, to compete for $10,000 in cash prizes.
Congratulations to Zoltahn Szabo and Cillian Donnelly, who were selected as the Waverley participants this year. They will both participate in a series of structured workshops for high school students, where students learn how to come up with a good business idea and build a plan around it.
Participants are mentored in teams by TiE Charter Members, culminating in a formal presentation of their idea and plan to a panel of experienced entrepreneurs.
