About Tippy Connect Young Professionals

Tippy Connect Young Professionals (TCYP) members join for the opportunity to grow as professionals, share ideas, take leadership roles and give back to the community where they live, work and raise families.

As young professionals in our community, we can’t afford to sit on the sidelines.  It has become increasingly important to develop a professional network and find ways to get involved in the professional, social and philanthropic community around us.

We want to be your information hub for any professional development, community involvement or networking information in Tippecanoe County.  We believe it is important to grow roots in your community and we hope you’ll start with us!  Join us for one of our many events – are you looking for professional development?  Networking?  Meeting other people your age?  We have something for everyone!

“I joined Tippy Connect to meet new young professional individuals that I could learn from and aspire with. Tippy Connect has not only given me the opportunity to be a part of something that is bigger than myself; it has allowed me to better understand and integrate into our Greater Lafayette Community”

— Jen Dykiel, Tippy Connect Member

“I joined Tippy Connect in 2010 to meet more young professionals in the community. Never would have I dreamed the impact this decision would have on my life. I have built many new relationships, both professionally and socially. It has allowed me to always have someone to turn to with any question, whether it be for my employment or my personal life. I have grown substantially as a person and employee due to the opportunities this organization has offered me. The stories of success that filter from the efforts of all involved show the great value Tippy Connect offers to the young professionals of the Greater Lafayette area.”

— Shane Weist, Tippy Connect Member


Our History

We became an organization in 2006 after the need for a collective voice of young professionals in the Greater Lafayette area. TCYP is under the umbrella organization of the Greater Lafayette Commerce.

In December of 2006, TCYP launched the community’s first Top 10 Under 40 awards presentation to highlight the impact young professionals have in the development of local economy, professional leadership and quality of life.

We host several annual events, community fundraisers and a series of networking and professional development opportunities for young professionals.

Join us as we continue to LEAD, GROW, IMPACT and CONNECT with our community!
