TiE Entrepreneur Institute for Small Business Entrepreneur ( EISB ) is a program by TiE Seattle to help aspiring entrepreneurs understand the fundamentals of building a successful small business from successful entrepreneurs, seasoned operators and domain experts in interactive sessions and fireside chats. TiE EISB Prog is for those entrepreneurs who are looking to build a small, community-based business.

Very often, aspiring entrepreneurs have expertise in their particular area of business but lack knowledge of the other domains also necessary for building a startup, for example, sales & marketing or finance. To help entrepreneurs fill this gap, TiE EISB sessions will cover a wide range of topics, from getting started, how to form and structure your company, small business finance, business modeling, building a marketing plan for your business, digital marketing fundamentals, how to set up and manage an eCommerce site and building and presenting a business plan
