About / TiE and TiECON

TiECon is a full day program celebrating and promoting entrepreneurship success stories and latest developments. We bring in keynote speakers from the venture, finance and start-up sectors and complement that with notable figures from local government, media and philanthropy.

Gear up for a full day deep-dive into the latest of technology and entrepreneurship – talks delivered by people who have started and exited companies, and successful corporate executives who are leading the next-gen of innovation.

The theme for this conference is Moonshot: Entrepreneurs Solving Our Greatest Problems. A number of multinational conglomerates have embarked on so-called “moonshot” initiatives that will position them for the next half a century or more. Many of these initiatives already have received tremendous internal traction. This conference will examine some of these initiatives as well as reviewing the startups that aspire to change the world; mainly focusing on artificial intelligence, the environment and healthcare. In addition, we will examine the ethical implications of automation and global impact. The conference also will feature PE/VC tracks.

TiE is a non-profit, global community welcoming entrepreneurs from all over the world. We believe in the power of ideas to change the face of entrepreneurship and growing business through our five pillars; mentoring, networking, education, incubating and funding. TiE was founded in 1992 by a group of successful entrepreneurs and is currently the world’s largest entrepreneurial organization. With a variety of programs and a strong member base of investors, entrepreneurs and corporate executives, we are reaching out and fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs.
