If you are an aspiring entrepreneur dabbling with questions like
What exactly is entrepreneurship all about?
What is the right time to start up your own venture?
or if you’ve already started up your venture and want to know
How to scale your business?,
How do really go about the whole funding business ? etc then TiEcon Delhi 2009 is the place for you to be.
TiEcon is one of the biggest conferences in India on entrepreneurship and is aimed at inspring and educating entrepreneurs on various aspects of entrepreneurship and the relevant growth opportunities.
TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs), the organization behind TiEcon Delhi 2009 is a global not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of entrepreneurship. With 53 chapters across 12 countries TiE’s mission is to foster entrepreneurship globally through mentoring, networking, and education. Dedicated to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and giving back to the community, TiE’s focus is on generating and nurturing the next generation of entrepreneurs.
What differentiates TiEcon from other conferernces/events aimed at entrepreneurs is the fact that
1) TiEcon is at a much bigger level:
Some Numbers for Tie:
- 2,500 experienced entrepreneurs and business executives as charter members.
- 11,000 aspiring entrepreneurs and professionals as members.
- More than 500 events with over 70,000 attendees worldwide.
Given the scale at which TiE operates and the fact that the Shri P Chidambaram(Home Minister) would deliver the inaugural address for Tiecon Delhi 2009 it’s easy to imagine the scale of the event. The scale is also wide as unlike most other conferences aimed at entrepreneurs there aren’t really any restrictions on the size or kind of startups. For ex: There will be sessions on security and renewable sources of energy
2) Platform to meet the policy makers:
Another aspect that puts TiEcon in a different league is the fact here you can get a chance to interact with the policy makers for your segment/industry of interest. This in itself is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to interact and connect with people who decide various policies. For ex: A couple of speakers from government include Mr. Dinesh Rai, Secretary, Ministry of Micro Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) and Mr. Deepak Gupta, Secretary, Ministry of New & Renewable Energy.
3) Exposure to other sectors/industries:
While the most an attendee can get to learn at a typical startup event is within the realm of that industry(tech mostly) but in an event like TiEcon one gets a great chance to learn more about other segments like Energy, CleanTech and Education.
Here’s a screenshot of some of the attendees/delegates.
