TiE-Boston recognizes the importance of mentors in a professional’s career. To address this need, TiE has set up mentoring services for its members.

The TiE Mentoring program is focused on helping Aspiring Entrepreneurs (or “AE’s”) get direct coaching and guidance from experienced entrepreneurs and business managers that have been successful in the AE’s field of endeavor. The objective is to provide members and entrepreneurs with a mechanism to draw on knowledge and experience that is resident in TiE Charter Members (all of whom have been successful in an entrepreneurial venture). The goal is to assist a member with his or her entrepreneurial ambitions.

Any TiE-Boston member can request a personal mentoring session with TiE Charter Members. The requests are processed on the basis of availability of mentors. The sessions last roughly one hour and topics of discussion are usually related to start-up companies or other professional matters.

Please note: In order to access these Mentoring sessions, you must be a member of TiE-Boston. Mentoring sessions are scheduled on a first come-first served basis. There is no waiting list.

The process of Mentoring will involve the following steps:

  • Apply for inclusion in the TiE Boston Mentoring Program by providing some fundamental, baseline information about you and your entrepreneurial effort.
  • The TiE Mentoring Program Chair will review information and seek to introduce you, if you meet the qualification requirements for this program, to a pool of potential Mentors.
  • Over the course of some initial interactions via email, a meeting will be set up between you and a small group of potential mentors. At this meeting, you will describe your efforts in greater detail.
  • Following-up on this meeting, a lead mentor is expected to emerge and this Lead Mentor will become your primary interface to TiE’s resources. Please note, however, that there is no guarantee that there will be a sufficiently good fit with the mentor pool and there is a chance that there may not exist an appropriate lead mentor.
  • Over the course of a one-year period, the Lead Mentor will work with you to enhance your entrepreneurial skills in order to increase your skill set and likelihood of entrepreneurial success.

If you are interested in applying to the TiE Mentoring Program, please fill out and submit the Mentoring Request form located here.

  • The program is not for career guidance and is only for people with a business plan who are serious about starting their venture.
  • The program will NOT seek to pass judgment on the merits of your business. The goal of the program is to help you be a better entrepreneur so that you can better refine your business skills and plans.
  • The program will NOT focus on tactical issues such as raising short-term capital. Certainly, most enterprises require capital for establishment and growth. So, although introductions to capital sources may take place as a part of the overall Mentoring process, this is not the focus of the program. Please also note that Mentors are not to be considered primary capital sources. Indeed, if a Mentor does establish any form of financial relationship with an AE, then the Mentor is compelled to resign as a Lead Mentor (or from a Mentoring team) that is involved with the AE in question.
  • The program does NOT make any assurances regarding the potential success of a venture. All of the decisions related to a business are the sole responsibility of the AE and prior to joining the TiE Boston Mentor Program, you will be asked to sign a formal agreement indemnifying TiE Boston of any possible liabilities related to your business venture.

At Foley Hoag, we offer services which respond to the needs of our clients, in the context of the client’s business, designed to provide solutions to the problems in question. Our commitment is to devote our best efforts to help our clients reach the objectives they have set for themselves. We recognize that professional expertise is only a tool and that having the experience of a business, industry or technology which provides understanding of our clients’ objectives is equally important in the successful completion of an assignment. To bring this combination of experience and expertise to bear on a client’s needs, we staff assignments with multidisciplinary teams which can respond to the entire scope of the problem. Using this approach we have been able to assist our clients maintain their momentum during periods when the need to resolve a particular problem might otherwise have deflected them from their chosen courses.
