The Talent and Innovation Competition of the Americas (TIC Americas), a program developed by the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT), is an international competition that supports young entrepreneurs in furthering their innovative ideas and implementing new sustainable business models. TIC Americas goes beyond developing a business plan as it incorporates "before and after" stages, focusing on training and mentoring as preparation for the competition, and providing follow up services.
