The Kaapiphile team from Government Girls High School (Ernakulam South) became the winner of the 7th edition of the TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) – Chapter Level Business Plan Competition.
TiE Kerala this year hosted the 7th edition of the TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) – Chapter Level Business Plan Competition in Virtual Mode. A total of 139 students from eight schools (public and private schools – four each) in Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode participated.
Ajit Moopan, President of TiE Kerala, said: The program is part of the TiE Global TYE initiative, designed for high school students (Grades 9 to 12 or equivalent) incorporating classroom sessions, mentoring and a business plan competition to teach them about entrepreneurship, and prepare them as entrepreneurs and future leaders.
The Kaapiphile team developed filter coffee in capsules as an award-winning business plan. Team Conquerors and Team Amara (both from Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Nadakkavu) shared the second prize.
Their business plan was “She for magic” (ShefM), an effort to provide suitable part-time work for women and the mental health support application, respectively. Global Public School’s Danta team, Ernakulam, who developed the “redefined toothbrush” as part of their business plan, took third place.
The first prize winner will represent TiE Kerala in the final competition scheduled for June 18-19 in the United States.
Students Sowndaryaa Lakshmi, Dimple, Elisha Aenorie and Shivanandana KB represented the Kaapiphile team.
