TYE High School


TYE is one of five pillar programs that aims to foster entrepreneurship in high school students. The Atlanta program will begin its 7th year in September 2016. Our goal is to empower students by educating them on what it takes to become the next generation of rock star entrepreneurs.

We are a hands-on entrepreneurship program with a curriculum taught by real entrepreneurs that include steps to build an actual product or service. Many students have never heard of or completed courses like ideation, hypothesis, business model canvas, financial cash flow and projections & customer discovery, and minimum viable product. Students will learn from entrepreneurs, network to build relationships and learn to start and scale a company.

Like TiE, TYE was founded by actual entrepreneurs who believed that bringing together a diversity of youth will spawn a diversity of solutions for the problems of the present and future! Giving back is the theme with all entrepreneurs, and our mentors & educators believe starting young makes the greatest impact. We love watching the students discover that entrepreneurship is possible. Through mentorship, our vast network of diverse TiE Entrepreneurs teach and work with students to inspire & awake the entrepreneurial gene that is already inside every student. We truly believe that through entrepreneurship the youth will have brighter future!
