“ For startups in India, I want to thank TiE for its valued suggestions, for creating a more supportive environment for startups. I know you will succeed on the strength of your genius and enterprise, but when you need a helping hand, or when you find hurdles in your way, we will be there for you.”
--Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi during India-US Startup Konnect

“If you want to be big, if you want to be relentless, you’ve got to get involved with TiE because I will tell you why...when they asked me to come speak, I am here because it is [one of] the most effective, biggest, connected groups in the world.”
-Jeffrey Hayzlett, former CMO of Kodak (CMO Inflect, 2017)

“Sponsoring TiE CMO Inflect was a great opportunity for us to share our brand and get in front of thought leaders and marketing leaders across Silicon Valley, and… great to share the opportunity to participate.”
-Vinay Bhagat, Founder & CEO, TrustRadius (CMO Inflect, 2017)

“So glad I came. I’m pretty jaded about how useful conferences are but your panelists have been outstanding.”
-CMO Inflect Attendee (2017)

“TiEcon blows out of the water every other entrepreneur network and gathering.”
-Love Beejal, Founder & CEO, NeoStencil, Inc. (2017)

“TiEcon helps bring companies, thought leaders, investors, innovators and entrepreneurs together on [machine learning] better than any other organization in the US.”
-Manju Devadas, CEO, Pluto7 (2017)

“The best experience — a global opportunity — for entrepreneurs to learn, share, engage, create, commit and accelerate the execution of their global vision and mission.”
-Richard Philip Eastburn, Founder/CEO Global Immersion Technologies LLC (2017)

“An exceptional platform to learn, teach and network — all in a day’s work.”
-Zain Jeewanjee, Escalon Services (2017)

“TiE Angels was one of the earliest groups to recognize the market demand for a secure Data Stream Network and the potential of PubNub to address that need. Their participation in our financing, and their amazing network of senior execs, has been instrumental in helping PubNub grow beyond 1,000 customers across 60 countries, 250 million connected devices, and 3 million transactions per second.”
-Todd Greene, Founder & CEO, PubNub

“We were able to sign a term sheet with a venture group which was introduced by TiE Angels in a matter of less than 1 week. Also as a direct result of the due diligence conducted by TiE Angels...we were able to attract substantial funding from 3 other Angel groups with TiE being the lead. Further, as a result of the due diligence conducted by TiE, we have been able to sign a term sheet for a very large Series A at very favorable terms with a Swiss PE at a pretty significant valuation increase from this bridge round.”
-CEO, POC Medical Systems

“On my book tour at The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) in California, I spoke with 4,000 Indian entrepreneurs and engineers. It was the most exciting day I had on my tour… [to see] thousands of Indian entrepreneurs dominating Silicon Valley. It’s amazing what has happened. What India has done for Silicon Valley is unbelievable.”
-Jack Welch, former CEO, GE, in a Forbes India interview (2016)

“TiE’s annual conference on entrepreneurship… is completely focused on how to create tech startups that succeed in the current economic climate. I don’t endorse events often, but — if you are near the San Francisco area — for founders and CEOs, I believe it to be a worthwhile investment.”
-Tim Ferriss, author of 4 Hour Workweek

“Building a company from startup to a global business is both exciting and challenging. The skillsets required to launch are vastly different than the skillsets required to run a large, complex organization, requiring continuous learning. TiE is an excellent resource for entrepreneurs regardless of where they are in the journey.”
-Sanjay Mehrotra, Co-founder, President & CEO, SanDisk (2016)

“TiE provides an extremely valuable platform to accelerate the journey of an entrepreneur. TiE brings the startup ecosystem together and this can give the entrepreneur what they need to accelerate their journey from vision to company launch.”
-Diane Greene, SVP, Google’s Cloud Businesses, May 2016

“TiE SV facilitated a number of CIO introductions for Druva, which were very useful for both great product feedback and eventually paying customers.”
-CEO, Druva (2015)

“The whole TiE community came together and surrounded Seclore during the US launch phase. From social dinners to formal business advice from mentors like BV (Jagadeesh), Raju (Reddy) and Manish (Gupta), the program acted like a basketball springboard, softening the landing and propelling the company forward.”
-Vishal Gupta, CEO, Seclore (2015)

“TiE Angels played a critical role in the success of CloudVolumes. First, they provided our seed round and it was much easier to work with a large number of individual investors. Second, their experienced entrepreneurs and investors joined our board. Third, TiE hosted CIO Forums that led to our initial enterprise customers. Finally, individual investors in TiE Angels were helpful throughout the life of the company with introductions to customers, partners, job candidates and more.
-Matt Conover, Founder & CTO, CloudVolumes (acquired by VMware)
