Global Newsletter – April/May 2017

April / May 2017 Newsletter

Dear Members,

TiE’s first ever public event was “TiE Entrepreneurs Seminar” in Silicon Valley in 1994 –  a sold-out event with 500 attendees. Starting from 1996, this annual event has been known as TiECon. Today, we have TiEcons taking place in almost every Chapter and every region where TiE is present.

TiEcon conferences help to invigorate the entrepreneur community and provide great networking opportunities for members. Attendees are able to hear from world-renowned speakers and learn about emerging business trends, technologies and startup opportunities.

I take this opportunity to invite you to the upcoming TiEcon SouthEast in Atlanta, which is on April 29, 2017; and TiEcon in Silicon Valley, happening on May 5-6, 2017.

Read on to learn more about the recent TiEcon events and programming happening all around the world.

Warm regards,

Suhas Patil
Chairman, TiE Global
