This year at TiEcon 2016, we are excited to bring you a brand new program calledVCConnect. This program provides that first connection between pre-selected “hot companies” and multiple VCs. These companies will give “speed pitches” and get valuable VC feedback. The objective is to expose promising startups to domain-specific (IoT, Cloud & IT and Data Economy) VCs to socialize their business story while making their first ten VC connections.

How to sign up:
Participants will be chosen from a highly competitive pool selected from among TiE 50, Bootcamp, International Biz Plan Competition winners, and other “hot” applicants. Qualified startups will only be those seeking first institutional round of funding. If you qualify, send an email to [email protected] (Important Note: Startups that are raw and have not yet gone through a seed round of funding are not eligible for this program).
