TiE NY is hosting its first TiE Women Pitch Competition on July 28, 2020. This will be a virtual event and the same as our regular Pitch Competitions, with one twist: all the participating companies must have a woman in their Founding team.
The winner will get a paid trip for one representative to the TiE Global Mega Pitch Competition in Dubai in December where they will compete for a $100k prize against women-led startups from all over the world. Three Runners-up will also be selected for an accelerator workshop.
TiE New York hosts a Pitch Competition twice a year. Finalists get the opportunity to pitch to a room full of investors and other entrepreneurs. We run this Pitch Competition in the context of our Angel Investing program. Many of our Charter Members are active angel investors and advisors to startups in New York and around the world.
If an individual company can garner $100k in investment from the Charter Members in our New York chapter, then we will nominate the startup to pitch on the TiE Global Angels platform. This gives them the opportunity to pitch their companies to 15,000 Charter Members from all 61 chapters in the TiE network around the world.
The Winner from our November 2018 Pitch Competition, a company called Vectorly.io, executed a pre-seed round in the Spring of 2019 with a significant portion of the proceeds coming from TiE NY Charter Member investors they met at our event.
Our Committee will review the applications and select five finalists (and two back-ups) to present on stage. We pair each of the finalists with a team of TiE Charter Members for coaching and mentoring in the run-up to the Pitch Competition. While using this resource isn’t mandatory, we have found that the most successful companies engage with and use the feedback from their “champions.”
