SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Aug 12, 2020 TiEcon2020, a first of its kind virtual entrepreneurship conference and the global flagship event of TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs); has partnered with the reality investment show Meet The Drapers. 

TiEcon 2020 is an initiative to inspire entrepreneurs to make the most during these stressful times. Due to the pandemic, TiEcon has transformed into a virtual conference this year. Attendees from all 61 of Tie chapters spread across 14 different countries will convene to brainstorm on ideas.  One of the highlights of the event is the TiE50 awards.  

The prestigious TiE50 awards recognize the top technology and technology-enabled startups with no restrictions placed on any specific technology segment. Each year thousands of startups contest in the TiE Silicon Valley’s premier annual awards. 84% of the winners have received more than a billion dollars in funding since the inception of this program in 1956.  TiE50 awards have partnered with the popular reality show ‘Meet The Drapers’, where the Draper family invests in exciting new ventures. Entrepreneurs from around the world are selected to pitch their ideas to the Draper family and celebrity guest judges. As a result of this partnership, selected startup teams from the TiE50 awards this year will receive a chance to make their pitch on the show!

“In the last decade, TiE50 has become a global brand for recognizing high potential startups,” said Mr. Kamal Anand, Program Chair, TiE50. “Besides the coveted recognition, it provides the winning startups a great opportunity to gain visibility and present in front of venture capitalists, and angel investors, potential customer and partner company executives at the annual TiECon conference. This year there is a unique opportunity of being selected for the casting call for the Meet the Drapers show as well as getting access to 1-1 mentorship from Silicon Valley investors/entrepreneurs.”

“We are always scouting to meet great entrepreneurs. Our partnership with TiE50 awards opens many new possibilities. We are excited to hear about new ideas that emerge from the event,” said Tim Draper, Investor, and Founding Partner, Draper Associates. 

Last month, a precursor event called Road to TiEcon concluded with a positive response. The event successfully conducted three main tracks and several sub-tracks on the latest tech trends. TiEcon 2020 main event will take place on 2- 3 September 2020.
