The Young Entrepreneurs Program was started three years ago in Boston, since then it has grown to 19 cities, which are participating in the TYE Global Business Plan Competition this year.
TYE Vancouver is open to Metro Vancouver students between grades 9 and 12, who are able to attend classes on Saturdays at KPMG Offices in Metrotower II in Burnaby. It’s optional to share your grades in the application but what TiE are looking for are students that are willing to give that extra effort, be it in sports, volunteering in their schools or in the community. The application also consists of two short essays on why students would like to learn about business and entrepreneurship.
