To join as a New York chapter Charter Member you first need to apply by setting up your online account.
Charter Members are successful veteran entrepreneurs, corporate executives and senior professionals who have reached a stage in their professional life when they are ready, willing and able to contribute to fellow members. TiE is a non-profit and this is volunteer work. Charter Membership is by invitation only and subject to a due process prescribed in the TiE bylaws. Charter Members pay significantly higher annual dues than members and help underwrite TiE operations. The annual membership dues are $1250 annually. Charter members benefit by networking with each other and derive satisfaction through helping budding entrepreneurs. They also gain opportunities to participate in start-ups in many ways.
