TiE-Boston is a comprehensive eco-system for entrepreneurs with vital resources for every stage of the entrepreneurial process. It is part of the global TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs) group that is the largest not-for profit organization promoting entrepreneurship. TiE-Boston runs several vibrant programs to educate, mentor, network and inspire entrepreneurs in the community. TiE connects entrepreneurs with each other and other stakeholders in the entrepreneurial world including other serial entrepreneurs, Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists, Vendors and Service Providers.
TiE as a concept was born spontaneously when a handful of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs with roots in the Indian subcontinent met by chance in 1992. Out of that meeting came the idea of an organization that would bring together high achievers of the Indus region for the purpose of networking. From this simple concept, TiE has evolved into an active, vibrant organization with three objectives:
•To network and to facilitate networking among members;
•To foster entrepreneurship and to nurture entrepreneurs and
•To help membership integrate with the mainstream community.
TiE-Boston is based in Cambridge,MA serving the New England Region and it shares the values and philosophy of the TiE Global organization. TiE Global has over 13,000 members in 62 chapters worldwide and as power of networking grows, the network gets larger.
