Registrations open in anticipation of the Official TIC Americas and Eco-Challenge 2014 launch in Paraguay

On September 12, 2013, the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT), PepsiCo and the Organization of American States (OAS) opened the registrations for the Talent and Innovation Competition of the Americas (TIC Americas) and Eco-Challenge 2014. Over the previous 8 editions over 24,000 young people worked hard to compete in the TIC Americas. These entrepreneurs were able to further their projects, make new business connections and build their entrepreneurial spirit; and this year will be no exception.

So are you ready to take the Challenge and bring your innovative idea to a new level? If you are between 13 and 35 and a citizen of one of the OAS Member States you can register your idea, project or start-up at www.ticamericas.net. All participants are required to submit a business plan, prototype, visual presentation and the link to the project's online page to be eligible for participation in the online evaluations portion of the competition. The deadline for submissions is January 19, 2014.

TIC Americas and Eco-Challenge, however, is not just a competition, but also a resource center for before, during and after stages of the process, as well as an extensive community of young entrepreneurs and business development professionals. On October 4th, 2013 the TIC Americas and Eco-Challenge 2014 Official Launch in AsunciĆ³n, Paraguay that includes participation by governments, the OAS, program partners and young entrepreneurs, will bring this community together by broadcasting the activity live through an online Webcast at www.ticamericas.net and www.yabt.net. Stay tuned for announcements on the event agenda!

Background
In its 2013 edition, TIC Americas has grown to include over 3,300 young entrepreneurs from 27 countries and has further integrated participants from Latin America and the Caribbean, through the Caribbean Innovation Challenge (CIC). Over 7 years and 8 editions, more than 24,000 young entrepreneurs from 75 countries have participated in the competition.

Eco-Challenge
In 2009, PepsiCo and YABT partnered to create the Eco-Challenge, a category of awards within TIC Americas, focused on innovative projects that offer creative solutions to environmental problems. The category has grown progressively since its first edition, where 300 teams from across the region registered to participate. In 2013, 1,292 teams representing 26 countries took the Eco-Challenge, demonstrating the growing involvement of youth in creating innovative solutions to environmental issues.
