“Entrepreneurship is quite the lonely journey, which is a constant battle happening between the drive of ambition and the doubts of self-preservation.”
To help you in this journey by connecting you with your peers is the TiE-ISB Connect 2015, a platform that brings together the startups from across the city, giving them the much-needed support, guidance and review from industry experts and peers.
TiE-ISB Connect 2015 is back with yet another astounding edition of fuelling startups with the The TiE-ISB Connect, which is a joint initiative of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), Hyderabad and the Indian School of Business. It is a forum that brings together venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and academicians to interact and help build successful enterprises.
The conference/summit has been immensely popular ever since its inception in 2006 and continues to enjoy the same, which is evident from the tremendous support it has been receiving from both members and non-members alike in the past few years.
This is evident from the response that the 2012 TiE-ISB Connect received, which includes an active participation of over 1,000 professionals, 50 speakers and 30 venture capitalists and this year there would in all likeliness be an increase in the number of participants at the event.
What to expect at the TiE-ISB Connect 2015:
Six grand keynotes, eight panel discussions, and 40 speakers would be there at the event to share their valuable experiences and learnings, which would be an immense learning opportunity.
This apart there are also several other tracks on sales and marketing for growth, IOT & Security, Media and Entertainment, Healthcare, Growth stage funding, Opportunities for Make in India, E-commerce and Food Supply Chain, Research Lab to Market, etc., are also being organized as part of this three-day-long event.
The three-day event would have two-tracks, i.e., the Investor Connect and the Mentorshop and the 1st Investor Connect would take place on 26th March 2015. This would also serve as a Curtain Raiser to the TiE ISB Connect, which invites companies to come together and raise funding in the range of INR 10-50 Crores.
Investor Connect is a half-day session that is being organized on the inauguration day of the TiE-ISB Connect 2015. The session aims to bring together companies from diverse sectors, which are seeking to raise equity funding in the range of INR 10 to 50 Crores, along with Venture Capitalists and PE firms.
The event has been planned in a way that all the participating companies and PE/VC firms would have the opportunity of interacting exclusively for 30-minutes in a one-on-one session. The companies can pitch their stories and the firms will evaluate the companies from an investment standpoint.
The companies that would be allowed to participate will be shortlisted and mentored by TiE Hyderabad. PE/VC firms will have the opportunity to evaluate multiple companies during the session and will thereafter be able to interact with the companies they are interested in.
