A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Welcome To TiE Philadelphia
TiE is the world’s largest entrepreneur focused organization, headquartered in Silicon Valley. With over 60 chapters globally in 18 countries, TiE is one of the best entrepreneur and investor networks anywhere. TiE is run by its charter members, people who are successful entrepreneurs and investors. Charter members support the activities of their local chapter by being mentors, investors, and supporters of the local startup ecosystem.
TiE Philadelphia serves the entrepreneur community in the Greater Philadelphia area, including South Jersey and Delaware. We are a new chapter, having launched in September 2016, but are blessed with a strong set of charter members who are passionate about TiE. Check out our charter members on this site as well as some of the exciting events we have planned for the Philly startup community.
In 2017, our first full year of operation, we had phenomenally successful entrepreneurs such as Sunil Wadhwani (sold his company to Cap Gemini for $4.5 Billion) and Richard Vague (multiple billion dollar exits) speak to our community. In partnership with PACT and with support from Comcast, we ran 3 startup pitch events which enabled startups to get in front of potential investors, partners, and customers. We also had multiple exclusive charter member dinners at the homes of various charter members—these were great for socially interacting with other successful entrepreneurs and investors locally.
This year, we are continuing with that strong momentum we have and doing more startup pitch events, again with PACT and Comcast, as well as our exclusive charter member dinners. We recently had the pleasure of honoring Jonathan Brassington who sold his company LiquidHub to Cap Gemini for over $500 M. We are proud to be an integral part of the Philadelphia startup ecosystem, helping support the next generation of successful entrepreneurs in the region. Cheers.
