Seattle-Area Teen Entrepreneurs to Compete with Students from Around the World for Best Business Plans at TiE Young Entrepreneurs Global Business Plan Competition

SEATTLE, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A team of Northwest teen entrepreneurs will compete with students from around the world for the best business plans at the TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) Global Business Plan Competition in Washington DC on June 23, 2018.

The annual event is organized by TiE, a global nonprofit dedicated to growing and fostering entrepreneurship all over the world and is aimed at guiding the future generation of entrepreneurs.  The team is sponsored by TiE Seattle, its Washington State chapter, after winning this year’s regional TYE Business Plan competition. 

The teens, Vignav Ramesh, 14, Tej Singh, 15 and Rishab Mohan, 14, all from Clyde Hill, Wash., will be presenting their plan for Zigantic, a mobile and PC game validation platform connecting developers and high-school students to provide early feedback to game developers to build high-quality games.  Since January 2018, they have been working with TiE Seattle and TiE Seattle charter member and team mentor Vinita Ananth, as part of its TiE Young Entrepreneurs (TYE) Seattle Program, to develop their business idea and convert it into a business plan.  During this time, Zigantic has become incorporated and is already generating revenue, with four employees and three interns.  The teens also plan to make diversity a priority in their company.

“We’re delighted to see these young people move to the TYE Global Business Plan Competition, and wish them all the best there,” said Sharmilli Ghosh, president of TiE Seattle. “The team demonstrates the initiative, drive and resourcefulness that TiE hopes to foster as part of the TiE Young Entrepreneurs program.”

In addition to Zigantic, the teens maintain a full schedule of activities including:

  • Vignav Ramesh - a STEM student in Bellevue School District’s Gifted Program; codes in Java, HTML and Python; and writes for the Northwest Youth Journal. 
  • Tej Singh STEM student at the Overlake School in Redmond, Wash.; state and national level debater, varsity water polo player, and is skilled in Python, HTML and CSS. 
  • Rishab Mohan - a STEM student at the International School in Bellevue, a U.S. National Under-15 Cricket Champion and honors student for AMC 8 and 10.  He can also code in numerous languages such as Java, HTML, Python and more.
