Innovación en el emprendimiento


"What is TiE?

TiE is a global, not-for-profit network of entrepreneurs and professionals dedicated to the advancement of entrepreneurship. TiE provides a platform for mentoring, networking & education, to entrepreneurs & professionals. Each location of TiE offices is called a chapter. TiE has grown into a prominent, global, not-for-profit organization, which is inclusive and transparent in its governance and operations.

What does TiE stand for?

TiE stands for “The Indus Entrepreneurs”, reflecting the South Asian background of the individuals who chartered the organization in 1992. Over time, TiE has come to represent “Talent, ideas and Enterprise” or ‘The Innovative Ecosystems’ through its activities and influences.

How and when was TiE started?

The concept of TiE was born at the end of 1992 at a lunch meeting of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and professionals. The idea originated with the objective of sharing and giving back to society. Initially this small group of individuals launched monthly activities, which, in turn, attracted more members. By 1994, TiE had become a formal organization with a larger group of members and participants.
TiE remains a unique volunteer driven organization, with the single-minded focus on its objective.

What is the mission and objective of TiE?

TiE’s mission is to foster and advance entrepreneurship across the globe. Its principle objective is to provide a platform on which people with entrepreneurial spirit and those interested in economic value creation can come together to share ideas. TiE endeavors to cultivate and nurture the ecosystems of entrepreneurship and free-market economics everywhere, as it sees this to be the single most powerful instrument of prosperity.

What is TiE’s philosophical base?

TiE's philosophical base is a compatible blend of the Silicon Valley culture of economic value creation through Entrepreneurship, and the ancient South Asian tradition of Guru/Shishya or Teacher/Disciple relationship. This enables very productive networking and mentoring relationships among and between experienced and budding entrepreneurs and professionals through the two-way exchange of value in experience and knowledge.

TiE's Philosophical Framework is to:

* Create an open, inclusive, and transparent organization
* Provide positive leadership role models
* Emphasize value-creation through informed entrepreneurship
* Maintain high ethical standards
* Display rigorous, intellectually honest behavior
* Pursue a modern, scientific and forward looking approach
* Remain socially responsible
* Do not tolerate pettiness, divisiveness and corruption
* Strive to remain an idea and value-driven organization"
