Dr. Kailash Malhotra Tribute

To a one, all the Charter and General members of TiE UK North were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our colleague, mentor, inspiration, and friend Dr Kailash Malhotra. Many knew Kailash well as a boundlessly energetic and passionate supporter of the NHS, an icon for social justice in healthcare and advocate for change. He assured, cared, and cured people at an individual patient level as a GP in Greater Manchester and strove for improved healthcare for all on the national stage in his role at the British Medical Association, amongst many other roles which he embraced in selfless service. With a focus on giving back to the community, TiE’s focus is on generating and nurturing the next generation of Entrepreneurs. Kailash epitomised this and so much more, serving both generations past and to come…..

“As long as we remember a person, they’re not really gone. Their thoughts, their feelings, their memories, they become a part of us.”

Tony Walker, President TiE UK North

“Today we celebrate the young people, youth led organisations, Governments and others who are working to transform education and uplift young people everywhere.” – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

August 12th is International Youth Day and one to be recognised and celebrated.

With over 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 and 24 in the world it is disappointing to hear that more than half lack the necessary basic reading and maths skills.

International Youth Day was created by the UN General Assembly in 1999, as they saw this age group as the leading partners in change whilst also raising awareness of the challenges they face all over the globe.

TiE UK North embrace the opportunity to assist their younger members, of which there are many, with their business ideas, their on-going development and the entrepreneurial spirit that so many of them show. Mentoring of this demographic is key to driving future industry leaders both with member owned businesses and out in industry itself.

TiE Young Entrepreneurs is a Global program aimed at fostering our future generation of entrepreneurs. TYE focuses on teaching entrepreneurship to high school students and helping them discover the rewards and challenges of becoming an entrepreneur.
