    TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) Oregon Launch and Informational Event

    Mercy Corps Event Center
    TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) Oregon is a unique program that helps high school students (grades 9-12) learn about the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.
    More than 23 TiE Chapters world-wide are already running a TYE program and now Oregon will have its own version!

    The curriculum starts late September 2014 and will run through Spring 2015. Students will form teams and each team will work on creating a business concept while learning necessary skills through a progressive series of "Boot camp" sessions, lectures, discussions and hands-on activities in sessions on Sundays between Fall 2014 and Spring 2015. The program culminates in a Business Plan Competition in Spring 2015. Winners will go on to compete in the TYE Global Business Plan Competition in June!

    For this launch and informational event we will serve dinner, feature speakers and information about the program, a hands-on activity, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and sign up students for the curriculum as well.

    This event is aimed at parents, interested high school students, sponsors, and interested members of the entrepreneurial community.

    Admission is free but pre-registration is required.
