TEA - Youth Workshop 2020 was a Grand Success

TEA - Telugu Entrepreneurs' Association ("TEA") Dallas chapter conducted another successful workshop TEA-youth entrepreneurship for High School Students from 9th grade to 12th grade students. This workshop started on January 12 and ended on February 16, 2020.

Each session is about three hours which was conducted at Shri Banquet hall. Final session was pitching their business idea which was held at University of Texas at Dallas engineering auditorium which was a grand success.

TEA Youth Workshop received over whelming response from the Dallas community this year. Unfortunately, we were able to only admit 70 students for this workshop.

The main achievement for these young students through this workshop is that we were able to put a entrepreneurship seed in these young minds by introducing to highly successful entrepreneurs who have created million and billion of dollars worth corporations who live within own community.

We were thankful to them despite their busy schedules they were able to come on Sunday afternoon’s to talk these students.

In these six sessions students have formed into five members team. These teams have to come up with a business idea, business plan for that idea and roles and responsibility for each team member, like CEO, CFO, CTO, CMO etc. (in other words they have to identify a problem) and come with a solution to that problem.

Each team gets 10 minutes’ presentation and five minutes Q/A from the judges. We were all blown away by these student’s presentation and we all felt that our high school students are much better than some of the presentations that go onto CNBC TV show called Shark Tank.

Nine (9) business participants pitched their business ideas in 9 different industries to 5 successful entrepreneurial judges and several high net worth investors.

More than 150 people attended this informative event and stayed for five 5 hours. We are getting an overwhelming response from attendees saying that this is one of the most professional, informative, inspirational and encouraging event not only for other young students but also for adults
