FAQ
  • What is the cost of TYE?

    There is a nominal fee of $250 that will be required once applicants have been notified of selection into the program. This fee includes a one-year TiE Vancouver Youth membership. Upon successful completion of the program, in which the student misses no more than two core classes and competes in the local business plan competition, $200 will be refunded back to the student. Through completion of the program, students will be recognized as TYE Alumni.

  • How much time is expected of us outside of weekly meetings?

    In the early part of the program, you only need to understand each concept after weekly meetings. But when you are grouped and paired with a mentor, it will be up to you to meet and develop a cohesive business model with your group.

  • What happens if we miss a class/meeting?

    We do suggest that you attend every class/meeting, but if you absolutely cannot make it, another student can fill you in on the missed material.

  • FAQ

     

    Where can parents ask questions?

    Any questions can be sent to our Organizing Committee at the email address admin@vancouver.tie.org. Information about TiE and the TYE program can also be found at our website www.vancouver.tie.org. Questions can also be sent to us on Twitter and Facebook!

    Will this program count towards my school results?

    No, it will not be linked to school, however it certainly fosters business knowledge that you may be studying in school. Also, distinction and or participation in the TYE program and/or world business plan competition will be notable on a CV.

    Will we be assessed on our business plans and how?

    Yes, you will be. After your mentor has worked with you and a business plan is drafted, there will be a Vancouver contest. A panel of judges will choose the best model that will then move on to the global competition. Specific judging criteria will be discussed in class.

    Will this assist with/be applicable to my university application?

    The TYE program is the first of such in Vancouver, however it is a worldwide prestigious program. This program can certainly strengthen an application. Reference letters can also be written for students to include in applications.

    Who will be supervising each meeting?

    One of four representatives of the TYE Vancouver Organizing Committee will supervise as well as the assigned business expert who will lecture each week.

    Where will each session be located?

    We will establish a HQ at Fasken Martineau in Downtown Vancouver and KPMG in Downtown Vancouver or Burnaby.
