CAMBRIDGE, MA—The deadline for applying to TiE Boston’s expanded TiE Young Entrepreneurs, known as TYE, is June 30. Any 9th -12th grade student interested in entrepreneurship, STEM or business may apply to participate.
“This is a unique program where students learn how to build a startup from actual practitioners – i.e. successful startup founders and entrepreneurs,” TiE Boston President Nilanjana Bhowmik told INDIA New England News. “As a non-profit organization, we are able to offer this high quality program at a fraction of the cost of comparable summer camps or workshops.”
She said TiE Boston this year is doubling the student intake to up to 90 students for the 2019-2020 class.
“We encourage all high school students interested in STEM and entrepreneurship to apply soon to secure their spot,” said Ms. Bhowmik.
TYE, an entrepreneurship academy, 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. Under the program, student teams utilize modern skills and tools to build a concept using customer feedback, iteration, and lightweight business models.
Program Fee (including a lunch provided at each session): $1,650. Sessions are held in the heart of Kendall Square at CIC. Students meet on alternating Saturdays from 10AM-4PM from October 2019 – April 2020.
At the end of each program cycle, the teams pitch their startups in front of a panel of investors. They not only have the chance to demo their product and services but they also have a chance to win seed funding:
1st Place: $5,000
2nd Place: $2,000
3rd Place: $1,000.
The 1st Place winning team from Boston is invited to compete at the TYE Global Competition held each summer.
