In 2011 the SouthCoast Chapter of TiE (The Indus Entrepreneur) first supported and sponsored TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs). This program has been described as a “mini-MBA meets Shark Tank” style competition for high school students: they form teams/companies, create a lean business canvas, prototype or develop their products, and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges at the program’s completion.
The first thing you may notice is the light bulb shape with the rays. This represents the great ideas that fuel entrepreneurs.
The base of the lightbulb is the letter E to signify entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.
Finally, the name is shaped over the logo in an arch, representing community, inclusion and strength.
We also see that the light bulb doubles as a person with hands in the air signifying jubilation at success or maybe just “having the light come on” with the next great idea.
Below is the pencil point and the book representing knowledge learned from the book and knowledge captured by the pencil.
