About Us

Our Mission

To foster the next generation of entrepreneurship

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 Entrepreneur Academy (TEA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides entrepreneurship education for teens.


If you’d like to support the program as a mentor or sponsor, please use the buttons below to get started.


Our Brand Logo

The Entrepreneurial Academy’s logo is designed to convey several messages.

Light Bulb

The first thing you may notice is the light bulb shape with the rays. This represents the great ideas that fuel entrepreneurs.

Light Bulb Base

The base of the lightbulb is the letter E to signify entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.

Brand Type

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.

Pencil and Book

Below is the pencil point and the book representing knowledge learned from the book and knowledge captured by the pencil.
