The Micro-Tyco Innovate Programme is designed to help young people not only discover their entrepreneurial skills, but also use them to address the issues that are most important to them, their community and the world. Participants will also learn about The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)and what global businesses and other school students are doing to address them.
It is designed to provide participants with the inspiration and confidence that they can play their part to make the world a fairer, more sustainable place for everyone. It will also provide them with a 'tool-kit' of transferable skills to help them succeed in the future.

Micro-Tyco Innovate challenges participants, in teams of 5, to create an idea to address a societal or environmental issue in their school or local community in just 30 days. At the end of the programme, teams will submit a 5-minute video pitch to their teacher, presenting their idea and how they would execute it in their school or local community.
The winning team from each school will then be selected to join the Micro-Tyco Innovate Online Regional Final, where teams will pitch their idea against other schools. Top team(s) will then be invited to pitch at the Micro-Tyco Innovate Online National Finals.
