The TiE University program enhances college learning with mentoring by real life entrepreneurs, internships, local and global networking and access to funding sources.
The program helps university startup founders and teams successfully launch and scale their ventures more rapidly.
To connect rising entrepreneurs with the seasoned innovators and leaders in our network, we empower individuals, guide startups through growth, and create value in communities.
TiE University has developed into an award-winning program that brings together university entrepreneurs with successful business leaders globally to perfect their pitch, develop their product or service and provide a holistic approach to their startup. The teams go through a qualifying round in February. The final teams then go onto compete for cash prizes at TYE Finals, a pitch competition held every April. The winning team then goes on to the TYE University Global Pitchfest Competition held in Silicon Valley in May to compete with other TYE University teams from around the globe. The event is held during TiECON Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, California.
