TiE NY is hosting its first TiE Women Pitch Competition on April 28, 2020. This will be 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 Summit in Dubai where they will compete for a $100k prize against women-led startups from all over the world.
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.
Judges for our Spring Pitch Competition include well-known NY-based venture capitalists and members of the New York startup scene including Google Cloud’s Startup Lead for NY, Tejpaul Bhatia.
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.
In addition to the opportunity to meet active angel investors, our sponsor Google Cloud offers Google Cloud credits for all the finalists, including $100k for the winning company.
Our Committee will review the applications and select five finalists (and one runner-up) 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.”
