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. No additional initiation fee is required. 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.
