Mentoring at TiE is one of the main priorities and most valuable assets to its members. This program is a direct result of the time and effort provided by our Charter Member (CM) Mentors. Mentees have the opportunity to virtually meet with TiE CM Mentors for a one on one, 60-minute session.

The needs of potential mentees would naturally be stage-dependent but would typically cover the following areas:

• Validating business plans

• Defining value propositions, offerings, markets, and sizing opportunities

• Strategies for raising funds

• Inputs on company formation and structuring

• Functional strategies and perspectives including technology, marketing, etc

• Inputs on managing Investors, compliance & governance requirements
