TiE Challenge


TiE Challenge is a year-long program to turn great ideas into real companies. It’s the first accelerator run by successful entrepreneurs to help new entrepreneurs. TiE Challenge offers a unique multiplicative force where Charter Members get involved in helping 20 startups every year.
