06:00 PM - 08:30 PM (America/New_York)
We cordially invite you to take part in our TiE New York's monthly Startup OMN event on Tuesday, August 11 starting 6:00 PM, for an exciting night of virtual networking and pitching!
For our August event, Gyan Kapur will be joining as the featured speaker. Gyan Kapur joined RTP Ventures in early 2020 and became co-Managing Partner of RTP Seed, RTP Ventures’ fund dedicated to investing in seed and pre-seed stage companies, later in 2020.
Prior to joining RTP Seed, Gyan ran Bayes Ventures, an early stage fund with a similar focus. Prior to Bayes Ventures, Gyan was a Vice President at Activate Venture Partners (first investor in Medidata, a $6bb exit) and an active angel investor.
Gyan graduated from the MBA program at the Wharton School of Business. Before Wharton, Gyan worked for Gather Health, a chronic disease management startup, and Citigroup where he built and scaled businesses in foreign exchange derivatives, focusing on complex products.
To pitch at this event, you don’t have to be a TiE member, you just need to be an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur with a passion to share your idea that may change our world. You will be given a safe entrepreneurial friendly virtual space to deliver an elevator pitch for 2 minutes in presence of a group of mentors, angel investors, venture capitalists, startup-focused service providers, and a very supportive community of successful entrepreneurs.
Each attendee must register in order to be invited on the online conference bridge exclusively created for this event.
If you plan to speak and pitch your start-up, please do register as a "Presenter”. Note that as speaker in a virtual forum, you will need to upload your pitch deck during the registration process. Your pitch deck shouldn’t exceed 6 slides. You may please review/download the pitch deck template here. If your start-up is speaking but you are not the key speaker, register as a non-member or member (whichever applies).
All attendees and speakers should log in sharp by 6:00 pm on August 11. Again - you don’t need to be member to attend the event, and the event is free. And you are always welcome to join our ever-growing coveted community of entrepreneurs by visiting our website.
