As temperatures dropped once again in London last week, a group of excited Young Entrepreneurs ducked out of the cold and into the first TYE event at The House of Lords. The event, to mark the launch of TYE (TiE Young Entrepreneurs) brought together a diverse cross-section of London’s budding entrepreneurs all keen to be part of this new and exciting membership launched on 22nd March.
Lord German hosted and introduced the evening, stressing how important young entrepreneurs were to London, a view which is backed up strongly by TiE London's President, Nina Amin, MBE. In a statement to Asian Voice she said,“ Our young entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of London’s future economy. It is vitally important that we nurture and support this diverse and exciting group of Londoners”.
TYE has three young Entrepreneur’s at it’s helm, Sheena Amin, Sabina Ranger and Saba Yussouf. Their mission is to create a supportive and inspiring community for like-minded entrepreneurs who will benefit from access to seasoned and successful entrepreneurs and serial investors as mentors as well as opportunities to pitch for funding. Further events throughout the year will see learning panels, networking and inspiring speakers.
And TYE’s first speaker didn’t disappoint, Charlie Gilkes, co-founder of the Inception Group (Mr Fogg’s, Bunga Bunga, Cahoots) took guests through his roller-coaster rise to becoming one of London’s most exciting and highly innovative hospitality companies. Charlie’s gung-ho attitude to opening unique and experiential bars left the room feeling they could tackle anything so long as they were adept at pivoting, maintained an active imagination and sense of humour.
TYE is part of the larger organisation,TiE London. Young entrepreneurs under the ages of 35 can join for a yearly fee to network with like-minded individuals at free events, find mentors and take advantage of the wealth of knowledge found in TiE’s global network of seasoned businessmen and women. TiE itself is the largest not-for-profit entrepreneurial network in the world, with over 12,000 members in 17 countries, hosting conferences in Silicon Valley, retreats and pitching competitions for investment throughout the year. Their London flagship event , the” Tie Gala Ball” will be held on 5 December 2018. This new membership is an amazing opportunity for any budding young entrepreneur in London.
