TIC Americas Finals to be held within the framework of the XLIII OAS General Assembly

During the March 25th, 2013 session, the Organization of American States (OAS) Preparatory Committee for the General Assembly approved the motion to host the Talent and Innovation Challenges of the Americas (TIC Americas) finals within the framework of the XLIII OAS General Assembly to be held this June in Antigua, Guatemala.

TIC Americas has become an important support platform for young entrepreneurs from the OAS Member States, age 13 to 36. Throughout the first six editions, this program has benefited more than 24,000 young people and differentiates itself by focusing on the preliminary training phase and personalized follow-up support for the participants.

The 7th edition of the competition, TIC Americas 2013 Finals will take place from June 2 to 3, 2013 in La Antigua, Guatemala, prior to the XLIII General Assembly. Twenty eight teams, qualifying from among 1,694 teams that registered for the competition, will compete for 5 awards in two categories: Talent & Innovation and Eco-Challenge.

This year will also include the participation of 6 Finalists of the first edition of the Caribbean Innovation Challenge (CIC), a competition open to youth in CARICOM Member States and designed as a business start-up accelerator to promote youth entrepreneurship in the region by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Sub-regional Office for Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the YABT.

The permanent missions of Barbados, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala and Guyana to the OAS congratulated the YABT on the progress of the TIC Americas and the work being done in the Americas to promote youth economic development through entrepreneurship. In his speech, Luis Viguria, the CEO of the YABT said: "YABT, through its programs, supports the youth in our countries, giving them the opportunity to engage in the economic development in our countries, bring positive examples and building roads for their social development and inclusion. It is thanks to the support from the OAS, the UNDP, the Governments of Guatemala and Israel and PepsiCo that these programs are made possible."
