TYE Orange County is an extra-curricular program dedicated to fostering the next generation of leaders through the transformative experience of building a startup. While learning the skills to build and lead a company, the program also coaches young people to identify and leverage successful pathways to reach personal and professional goals.
The program culminates with teams of 4-5 students competing in a Shark Tank style format for a cash prize of $5,000 and a chance to compete in regional and national competitions.
The program is sponsored by TiE Orange County - a non profit group with a mission to foster entrepreneurship in our community.
