TiE-Boston Announces TyE Program 2017-2018!
In its 13th year, this award winning program for high school students seeks to train the next generation of entrepreneurs through workshops led by seasoned entrepreneurs, mentorship and a business plan competition where $10,000 in prize money is awarded to winning teams. This program helps high school participants develop leadership, communication and team-building skills. Created by TiE-Boston in 2005, TYE has grown to be a global program taught in 26 TiE chapters. The first place team from Boston has the opportunity to participate in the TYE Global Competition and win even more prize money!
TiE-Boston will hold an informational session for interested students and parents on June 5th from 6-7:30pm at Constant Contact (1601 Trapelo Rd, Waltham, MA 02451).
It will not only be a chance to learn about the program and the upcoming curriculum for the 2017-2018 cycle but I will also lead interested participants in a short team building activity where they will walk away that evening with stronger leadership skills.
If you happen to know of someone who has a young adult in high school who may also be interested in attending, please feel free to forward this invite along. We are asking for RSVPs as we will provide refreshments and would like to ensure that the proper amount has been ordered for the evening!
We look forward to connecting on June 5th!
