In 2016 four friends, David, Cara, Derrick and Nichole, made some realizations. Most companies cater to adult owned businesses but who is helping our future entrepreneurs? For some teenagers the future seems overwhelming: “What do you want to be when you grow up? Where do you want to go to college?” There isn’t many job or entrepreneurial opportunities for teenagers. Most teenagers start college still not knowing what they want to do with their lives. The four friends realized that by giving today’s youth the basics of entrepreneurship that we can create a better future one neighborhood at a time.
The Tykcoon platform was created to safely connect aspiring entrepreneurs to homeowners that are in need of household assistance. Tykcoon gives the future entrepreneurs the knowledge and tools to help with business finances, organization, and marketing. This gives them the ability to explore, dream and create their future.
“We aren’t just hoping for a better future, we are working for a better future.”
