Social Entrepreneurs Networking

Registration link


The TIE Social Entrepreneurs Group would like to give everyone an opportunity to continue with the connections and networking. This meeting will be an opportunity for any social entrepreneur to come and present their idea. We also encourage any service providers who are willing to provide a service (legal, accounting, consulting, marketing etc.) to emerging social entrepreneurs to also pitch their company or service.

To keep the event moving, we will limit this to the first FIVE Social entrepreneurs who contact us and the first FIVE Service Providers.

Each presenter will have 2 minutes to pitch their idea or service

We will hold all questions to the end

At the end of the presentations, we will take 15 to 20 minutes to allow the audience to ask questions of the entire group of presenters

The Q&A session will end promptly to allow you to network, connect and learn more about each other and the presenters. We will spend five minutes telling you about the TIE SE group and some of our ideas for this year.

Please email to "vvdeshpande (at) gmail (dot) com"  ASAP to get a spot on the list of presenters.

    Very glad to have stumbled upon this meetup. Unfortunately I have team meetings on the scheduled date of this event. Would you ever consider switching future meetup dates or is this set as the reoccurring date/time?
