The Entrepreneur Academy & TiE Young Entrepreneurs

TiE South Coast’s Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) program began in 2011 with just over a dozen students. TiE South Coast is one of 66 chapters worldwide dedicated to fostering entrepreneurial skills in youth through mentoring, networking, and education. The Entrepreneur Academy (TEA) was launched in 2020 to administer TiE South Coast’s TYE program, serving over 150 students virtually during the pandemic. Moving forward all programming will be under the TEA umbrella.
