TiE was founded on the belief that nurturing entrepreneurs will lead to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and encapsulates the true spirit of giving back to the community. It was late C.K. Prahalad, Chief Mentor of TiE who said, “Mentoring is an essential part of building an entrepreneurial culture. More importantly, it is a true reflection of the spirit of giving by charter members.” There are several Mentoring programs at many of the TiE Chapters – both Group mentoring and Personal one-to-one sessions with seasoned entrepreneurs. These include “TiE Institute”, “My Story Sessions”, “Business Builder Breakfast”, Mentoring at “Business Plan Competitions” and many more.
TiE Chandigarh has a specific initiative for this purpose called Mentor Match which addresses to Idea Stage, Early Stage, Growth Stage startup’s and focus on organizing mentoring sessions for these groups.
