A not-for-profit organization dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship. Over a period of 27 years, we have established a global network of successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and senior professionals, spread across our 61 chapters in 14 countries.


TiE’s mission of fostering entrepreneurship is based on the five pillars of funding, networking, mentoring, educating and incubating.

OUR PROGRAMS: TiE Silicon Valley brings to you 60+ events year round. See below to understand the kind of events we host for you:

TiE Angels: TiE Angels is an angel investment group comprised of TiE Silicon Valley Charter Members and a group of  Angel Investors. The mission of TiE Angels is to support top-tier emerging companies with early stage investment and support. TiE Angels have already made investments in 45+ companies.

My Story: Through this series, we bring to you the success story of entrepreneurs who sold their companies in the last 12 months. Come and get inspired!

Domain Events: Our domain events focus on the most trending areas of innovation including AI/machine learning, security, blockchain, digital health, cybersecurity, CIO/CMO/CISO/CFO forums and many more. Such events are a great opportunity to make introductions to companies and professionals working in that vertical.

TiE Institute: Our TiE Institute programming is geared toward early-stage entrepreneurs, who are looking for instructional, practical real-world learning as well as interactive sessions with fellow members of the TiE community. These can be entrepreneurs with a simple idea to those with a developed product who haven’t raised funding yet. 

The goal of TiE Institute is to nurture these early-stage entrepreneurs toward getting to a point where they can participate in programs such as TiE Angels, and (we hope!) receive that first round of funding to move their vision forward. Under these series of events, we work with some of our sponsors from law firms, venture capitalists, accounting firms, banks, etc., to incorporate sessions for entrepreneurs to get IPO ready. 

Charter Member Events: Our Charter Members get to engage and meet with other fellow Charter Members throughout the year with a series of programs and events ranging from socials, business networking meetings, outings for plays, movies, global retreats, holiday parties and many more fun stuff. 

TiE Young Entrepreneurs: TYE is TiE’s global program aimed at fostering our future generation of inventors and entrepreneurs. The focus is on high school students, training them basic skills to be the change agents through invention and entrepreneurial thinking. 

Mentoring: Mentorship is at the very foundation of TiE. Whether you are a novice entrepreneur or a wannabe entrepreneur looking to validate your idea, you have the opportunity to get mentored on a one-on-one basis with some of the very best in the business. All our Mentors are highly accomplished entrepreneurs / professionals.

Networking: TiE Silicon Valley organizes multiple networking events throughout the year, bringing together Charter Members and Members. These events provide great opportunity for guests to attend and understand the benefits of memberships and learn how to get more involved with TiE.

Government and Ministers visits: Having deep connections to India and other chapter locations, we do get involved in planning various visits of senior government officials and Ministers. We hold mixers around such visits or plan a session with Charter Members and members based on the request we receive from the visiting delegation. 


The mission of TiE is to foster entrepreneurship through mentoring, networking, education, funding and incubation. With a focus of giving back to the community, TiE’s focus is on generating and nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs.


By assisting entrepeneurs, we believe we can empower individuals and create wealth in communities.
