Our members, partners, and volunteers come together to support innovation and startup growth through collective community efforts such as sharing experiences and resources, exchanging ideas, supporting the development of new TiE events focused on hot innovation topics, and so much more.
Our Charter Members give their advice and time to support rising entrepreneurs’ personal and professional growth. By fostering community among entrepreneurs, we empower individuals to create economic growth and vibrant careers through building innovative businesses.
Our community also gives back through the following TiE Boston programs:
TiE ScaleUp was developed to help growth stage companies overcome common obstacles and barriers to scale. Through this program, the community is able to support startups that are in need of the next stage of knowledge, mentoring, connections and resources, to successfully prepare for scale and their next capital raise. Participation in our five-month accelerator is free for admitted companies and we do not take any equity. Over 40 startups have participated in the ScaleUp program – collectively they have raised over $30 million and 100% are still operating today.
