Our Mission

What we intend to do


TiE was founded on the belief that nurturing entrepreneurs will lead to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation, and encapsulates the true spirit of giving back to the community. It was late C.K. Prahalad, Chief Mentor of TiE who said, Mentoring is an essential part of building an entrepreneurial culture. More importantly, it is a true reflection of the spirit of giving by charter members. There are several Mentoring programs at TiE Chapters – both Group mentoring and Personal one-to-one sessions with seasoned entrepreneurs. These include “TiE Institute”, “My Story Sessions”, “Business Builder Breakfast”, Mentoring at “Business Plan Competitions” and many more. Please contact your local TiE Chapter for more information.


The largest differentiator between TiE and other entrepreneurship organizations is TiE’s Global network. TiE Members are connected within a vast network of Enrtrepreneurs from around the world. By joining TiE you can use our Global Networking platform to connect, chat, video chat, share documents, and form communities with anyone in the network, anywhere in the world.
