About TiE Atlanta
TiE Atlanta is a nonprofit venture devoted to entrepreneurs in all industries, at all stages, from incubation, throughout the entrepreneurial lifecycle. As a top 5 chapter within the global ecosystem of 61 chapters across 17 countries, and a local focus, the heart of TiE Atlanta’s efforts lies in its five foundational programs, or “Pillars,” each of which offers entrepreneurs at every phase of development exactly what is most needed at that stage. Entrepreneurs may begin their TiE experience at any stage and will be “met where they are.” Throughout this virtuous cycle of the entrepreneur, those at the earliest stages benefit from mentoring and guidance offered by those in the later stages, ideally growing to a point where they are able to give back in turn. With an intense focus on mentoring, TiE Atlanta’s explicit aim is to mentor at least 65 entrepreneur-led companies each year. TiE Atlanta’s ultimate goal is to foster entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship, creating wealth for both the entrepreneur and the communities in which they thrive.
