to know about TiE University
TiE is a non-profit headquartered in Silicon Valley/Santa Clara, California, started in 1992 to foster entrepreneurship.
TiE University 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. TiE University is a program of TiE Global, a nonprofit that generates prosperity through development of entrepreneurs in all stages by creating community and beneficial relationships to support them.
In December 2018, TiE Global launched a concerted effort to hold a global pitch competition in conjunction with TiEcon Silicon Valley in May 2019. The inaugural program (TiE-U 1.0) had student teams representing 19 chapters from Canada, USA, UAE, Pakistan and India with a hybrid model of a 50/50 split of teams being present in California and some being virtual in May 2019. During 2020 due to the pandemic, TiE-U 2.0 evolved into a 100% virtual program with participants from 13 chapters across 5 countries (Israel replaced Pakistan in 2019) and included workshops, startup bootcamps, TiE Global Summit, and related programs by including college startups.

As a first-generation entrepreneur, I strongly believe mentoring, coaching, and networking are essential for a startup business. And through TiE University program, college students and recent graduates can find investors, collaborators, advisors, and co-founders to help them on their entrepreneurial journey and build the long-term network of entrepreneurs
