PILLARS OF TIE
Since 2002, TiE has been supporting entrepreneurs by offering education, mentorship, networking and funding opportunities. The mission of TiE remains to foster entrepreneurship globally through funding, mentoring, networking and education.
TiE was founded on the belief that nurturing entrepreneurs will lead to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and so encapsulates the true spirit of giving back to the community. It was the 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.”
In Singapore, TiE hosts Mentor-Mentee breakfast sessions at regular intervals during the year to connect and create these invaluable relationships.
The largest differentiator between TiE and other entrepreneurship organizations is TiE’s global network. Locally TiE Singapore provides regular opportunities to connect. TiE Members are also connected within a vast network of entrepreneurs 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.
Since its inception, TiE has utilized its vast network of successful entrepreneurs to give back and foster the next generation. Programs dedicated to providing education to both high school and college students, as well as up and coming entrepreneurs, have strengthened TiE’s Global footprint and led to numerous companies being nurtured and funded throughout the world.
The success of early stage companies depends on access to capital, advice and networks. TiE Sponsors and Charter Members offer just that. TiE runs numerous angel investment groups and funding forums throughout it’s network. The mission of such programs is to support top-tier emerging companies with early stage investment and support.
Start-ups often think about going global since day one. Under the SG GoGlobal umbrella, startups get the opportunity to network and showcase their business at various regions around the world. This platform enables cross border pollination of ideas, forming joint ventures, attracting mentors, customers and investors. The main aim for TiE SG here is to be a door opener for these companies and enable them to network with corporate heads, thoughts leaders , capital providers and educators.
