Five students of Euro International School, Jodhpur of grade 9th, Kritika Dudi, Kiran Gehlot, Nirbhay Pratap, Himanshu Rajpurohit and Pranay Rajvansh, participated in TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) Business Plan Competition 2018-19 organized by TiE Rajasthan, at Jaipur and qualified to participate in the International Round by bagging a position among the top three teams.
TYE is a global initiative under the aegis of TiE (The IndUS Entrepreneurs), a global non-profit organization based out of the USA, that supports start ups through networking and raising capital. TYE is dedicated to mentoring and conducting business plan competitions for high school level students in order to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership skills. Over 25 teams participate in the competition each year and the top team represents TiE Rajasthan in a global competition held in the USA. The winning team has a chance to pitch their startup idea during an all expense paid trip to Silicone Valley, USA before a congregation of Venture Capitalists from all over the world.
The students observed the plight of the specially-abled and elderly members of our society who were dependent on others even for mundane tasks like visiting the hospital and purchasing medicine and set out to come up with a plan to assist them. This simple motive gave birth to the idea that became "BookABuddy".
The students were mentored by Mr Vikram Ahuja, charter member TiE, who guided them into shaping their idea into a viable business plan.
We would like to wish these young entrepreneurs unparalleled success in this noble endeavour.
