Overview

Our mentoring program provides one-on-one guidance to budding entrepreneurs by assessing their needs and matching them with TiE Charter Members who are seasoned entrepreneurs, executives and functional experts across different industries. Whether you are looking to jump into entrepreneurship as a recent college graduate or a mid-level corporate professional, or are in the middle of your startup journey and need help to take your startup to the next level, our highly committed Charter Members are available to provide you the necessary guidance. Mentees can benefit from "Flash Mentoring," where they meet an assigned mentor for some one-time advise mentees need in a particular area, or from "Ongoing Mentoring," where mentees meet on a regular basis to get guidance on a wide range of topics from their assigned mentors.  

The Mentoring Program is absolutely free, and is available to all TiE NY Active Members. 

During our last Mentoring event, Joe Daniels, Co-Chair, VC & Emerging Companies Practice, McCarter & English, discussed key legal issues all founders should consider. Building upon that, "How to Effectively Fund-Raise for Your Early-Stage Startup?" will be the topic of our next Mentoring event on July 16, 2019. 

Topics covered will include:

1) Understanding the basics of early-stage startup fund-raising

2) Get inside the mind of your investors? (How does the VC industry work? What do early-stage investors typically look for?)

3) Identifying the right investors for your startup (There is always an investor available for every startup. Pitching to wrong investors can sully your deal for right investors.)

4) Creating a fund-raising timetable 

5) Creating fund-raising marketing material 

6) Practical tips preceding, during, and post investor pitch meetings. (Control your story).

We will use live case studies from founders in the room who are actively fund-raising to explain our material and provide real-time guidance. 

Come join us to make sure you are on the right track!

Our session will be run by Sab Kanaujia, who is the Board Member and the Mentoring Committee Co-Chair of TiE NY. A globally recognized entrepreneur, executive, advisor and investor in the digital technology industry, Sab is the Founder and CEO of Dia Ventures, an early-stage startup advisory and investment firm based in NYC. Sab has over two decades of experience working with over two dozen startups as a founder/investor/executive/Board advisor, which have thus far resulted in 10 exits including 4 IPOs (NASDAQ & NYSE). 

Mentoring is a benefit for our active members.  Non-members can buy tickets for our workshops but to be matched with a mentor you must join TiE New York first (membership is $100/year and you can join by signing up at ny.tie.org).  

About the Mentor Program

How Does The TiE NY Mentoring Program Works?

Our Mentoring Program is driven by Mentees. They work with the TiE Mentoring Committee to explain their requirements, identify their Mentors, coordinate with their assigned Mentors to schedule their one-time or ongoing meetings, and keep the Committee up-to-date on their evolving needs and any required changes they wish to make on their mentoring arrangement. 

In order to get started, we suggest the following steps to new Mentees:

1) Attend our monthly mentoring event that is typically held every third Tuesday of the month.

2) Use the event to learn more about our Mentoring program and network/socialize with various TiE NY Charter & Board Members, other Mentees and the broader TiE NY community. 

3) At the event, explain our Mentoring Committee members about your needs, and identify and meet, if possible, a potential Mentor available in attendance during the event.  

3) If you did not meet any potential Mentor who is a fit for your needs during the event, our Mentoring Committee will identify someone from our broader Charter Member community and introduce you to that Mentor.

4) Coordinate directly with the Mentor to schedule your mentoring meetings. 

5) Keep the Mentoring Committee updated about your ongoing mentoring with your assigned Mentor. 

6) If and when you need to change your mentor for whatever reason, please inform the Mentoring Committee and you will be assigned a new Mentor. 

7) Attend our monthly Mentoring events, which provide you valuable learning opportunities from expert speakers on various topics and other fellow entrepreneurs and mentees. Topics covered in past events include: How to Best Benefit from Mentoring, Finding the Product-Market Fit, Legal Issues Facing Entrepreneurs, etc.  

If you are interested in becoming a mentee or mentor please register to attend the next event so we can get to know you and fill out the appropriate mentor or mentee intake form for us here


About our Mentors

Our mentors are committed volunteers whose primary goal is giving back to the community. They also realize that the mentoring process can help them maybe as much as it helps the mentees they are advising. These volunteers are seasoned entrepreneurs, executives and functional experts across different industries. They have agreed to volunteer up-to four hours per month of their time in order to help budding entrepreneurs within the TiE NY community.
