Mr Khan grew up in Rome, Italy and after four decades in Europe moved to the US in 2000 where he has settled in the New York City vicinity.
To pitch you don’t have to be a TiE member, you just need to be a startup and/or investor with the passion to give your elevator pitch for 90 seconds in front of a group of angel investors, venture capitalists, startup-focused service based providers, mentors, and a large community of other successful entrepreneurs.
Each attendee must register in order to be included on the building's security list.
If you plan to speak, please register as a "Presenter". If your company is speaking but you are not the key speaker, register as a non-member or member (whichever applies).
Speakers should arrive by 6.00 pm and check in with our speaker coordinator. Should we need to limit the number of speakers due to high demand our members will be given priority to speak. But don't fear, its easy to join TiE! Become a member by signing up on our website at ny.tie.org.
