The Youth Entrepreneur (TYE) is a youth entrepreneurship education and training program designed and implemented by TiE, the world’s largest Entrepreneur Club. Through connections with the Oregon Entrepreneur in Residence Kanth Golpapur and President of TiE Oregon Nitin Rae, Benson Tech has been targeted as a focused eastside high school to sponsor the location of a TYE club.
Working with the GeoTech and AlgebraTech instructors at Benson Tech, the program will start this fall, providing hands-on teaching on teamwork, ideation, marketing and the “pitch” of a start-up business by the teams. This should work well for the junior class at Benson Tech and allow TYE to access other eastside high school participants at Benson Tech as sort of an
eastside incubator for youth entrepreneurs.
More information about TYE can be found at the TiE Oregon website at http://oregon.tie.org/tye-oregon/.
