We invite you to TiE New York's monthly Startup Open Mic Night event for an exciting night of networking & pitching! This June we celebrate female entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, educators & business leaders.
After our featured speaker, Raj Sisodia, women will hit the mic first, but don't worry, everyone is invited to speak, we'll do our best to be inclusive. Statistically there is a low percentage of female founders & co-founders so we encourage male founders to push forward their female team members to have a chance to represent their company.
Balancing gender statistics at the helm in the long-term won't happen unless men support the change. Leading change is our featured speaker, Raj Sisodia, is a best-selling author & founding leader of the Conscious Capitalism Movement. He is also the FW Olin Distinguished Professor of Global Business & Whole Foods Market Research Scholar in Conscious Capitalism at Babson College.
You don't have to be a TiE member, you just need to be a startup and/or investor with the passion to give your elevator pitch for 90 seconds in front of a group of angel investors, venture capitalists, startup-focused service based providers, mentors, & a large community of other successful entrepreneurs.
Please note that should we need to limit the number of speakers due to high demand our members will be given priority to speak. But don't fear, its easy to join TiE! Become a member by signing up on our website at ny.tie.org.
