Instructions for Applicants

In addition to registering here to attend this event; founders/leaders looking to apply to the competition need to complete an application through Gust by September 14, 2018.

Applicants should have developed an in-depth business plan addressing:  Value to customer, competitive positioning, market landscape, differentiation, marketing, sales and financial strategy (how will the company make money and when?).  What problem will the company solve and for whom?   What is the exit goal?  If your company has worked through all of these topics and has a strong business plan, we invite you to apply.

Finalists will be assigned a "Team Champion" ~ an entrepreneur/angel investor with an impressive track record.  They will coach their team to make sure they have a solid pitch prepared for November 5. 

 If you aren't already a TiE New York member, you can become a member TiE through our home page or join our mailing list to receive updates and info about our events.
