** We will close registration for this event on Sunday 10/20. ** Overview Our mentoring program provides one-on-one guidance to budding entrepreneurs by assessing their needs and matching them with TiE Charter Members who are seasoned entrepreneurs, executives and functional experts across different industries. Whether you are looking to jump into entrepreneurship as a recent college graduate or a mid-level corporate professional, or are in the middle of your startup journey and need help to take your startup to the next level, our highly committed Charter Members are available to provide you the necessary guidance. Mentees can benefit from "Flash Mentoring," where they meet an assigned mentor for some one-time advise mentees need in a particular area, or from "Ongoing Mentoring," where mentees meet on a regular basis to get guidance on a wide range of topics from their assigned mentors. The Mentoring Program is absolutely free, and is available to all TiE NY Active Members. Come join us to make sure you are on the right track! This Month: How to Think About Intellectual Property as an Entrepreneur We have arranged to have the legal team from Nixon Peabody brief us on the always popular topic of patents and intellectual property. Please note that this month only it will be on the 4th Tuesday of the month. You may register for the event to be held Oct. 22nd at Nixon Peabody’s New York offices on this page. Patents, trademarks, intellectual property are all on the agenda for our discussion and questions at this months mentoring session. Is filing a provisional patent really the right way to go? How do I know if my intellectual property is unique? In addition we will be hearing from our mentees on their progress and discussing our upcoming pitch contest. Members: Free Non-Members: $20 Come join us to make sure you are on the right track! Mentoring is a benefit for our active members. Non-members can buy tickets for our workshops but to be matched with a mentor you must join TiE New York first (membership is $100/year and you can join by signing up at ny.tie.org). About the Mentor Program TiE New York's one on one mentoring program, "Mentor Match" welcomes our members looking for startup guidance to be mentored by our experienced Charter Members. Many of our recent mentees came to us as presenters at our Startup Open Mic Nights. Members that have attended our sessions in 2019 and are active TiE New York members are in process of being matched with the mentee's needs foremost in mind during the process. They are being introduced via email as the matches are made by our mentorship committee. After being matched, Mentors and Mentees will be responsible for meeting on their own time in subsequent months as well as attend our monthly meetings where we will have speakers and workshops to supplement the one-on-one mentoring. The events will be predominately on third Tuesdays through June. If you are interested in becoming a mentee or mentor please register to attend the next event so we can get to know you and fill out the appropriate mentor or mentee intake form for us here. About Our Mentors Our mentors are volunteers whose goal is to give back. They are successful founders and investors running their own businesses and funds. They have agreed to volunteer their time for up-to four hours per month in order to help budding entrepreneurs within the TiE NY community.
