TiE University Pitch Competition

Are you ready to be part of the future of entrepreneurship?

Join us for the TiE-University Chapter Finals, where five outstanding university teams will pitch their innovative startup ideas to a panel of distinguished judges at this live event.

You will get to meet the teams and provide your own feedback along side other TiE New York members at Amazon’s recently renovated Fifth avenue location.

The winner of this local university level competition will represent TiE New York and compete against other TiE chapters winners from across the Globe in Silicon Valley this May.

“I completely went to the Pitch Competition on a whim, after a member of my investment circle forwarded the information to me, believing that we could find some good candidates..and I’m truly glad I did! I needed that shot of energy and passion, really reminded me of why I first became an entrepreneur. Keep up the great work, I’ll be coming to future events!” ~ Carlota Z, Angel Investor

“My mentor, generously took the time to review our pitch and offer his feedback.  We constantly work to hone our message around Geopipe’s innovations and value propositions, and his feedback was a constructive addition to this process.”  ~ Christopher Mitchell, PhD, CEO and Co-Founder, Geopipe

“Becoming a member and applying for the 2018 Pitch Competition has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my startup career.  I’m glad for the support of TiE New York.” ~ Sam Bhattacharyya, Co-Founder & CEO Vectorly

“I think the Pitch Competition will be a GO TO event in NY as time goes by.” ~ Seth Rao, Charter Member

I have been a Charter Member with TiE New York for 16 years. So I have attended a few events you could say. What I saw yesterday at the Pitch Competition was the ball flying out of the park. Some TiECons a decade ago were good, but nothing captures the NY moment in the way yesterday’s event did. We have 8 million people and the attendance, the variety and content was finally what TiE NY should be able to do.”  ~ Tariq Khan, TiE Global Board of Directors

“The 2018 Pitch Competition was the best TiE New York event I’ve ever attended in the last 15 years.” ~ Sab Kanujia, Dia Ventures
