It was a great experience to learn from the young ones at the TYE workshop. The Young Entrepreneurs began a few years ago at TIE Boston with the sole objective of improving the entrepreneurial skills in the young students aged between 14 to 17 and setting them up on the right mindset for business.
TIE Boston : TYE PROGRAM
India has been a forerunner with multiple cities biting the bullet and enrolling various schools for this unique one of a kind workshop.
I was blessed when TIE Kochi signed up with me for conducting this workshop this Jan for the current batch. It comprised of 20 smart kids of Choice and Global Public School who went through a fun filled 4 day workshop.
LEAN CANVAS PROGRAM :
This is based on the Lean Business Canvas Methodology and begins with Problem identification, then goes on to finding the Customer segments and the Unique solution with the Unfair advantage. The Finance revenues and cost modelling structure along with the Channels and Metrics of Measurement were dealt with in the last 2 days. The workshop was filled with high energy with games and activites to ensure the teenagers did not have a dull moment.
The end result was a combination of a Presentation and a Chart paper writeup which is the carry through to the next stage.
