TiE-Boston has a nearly two decades-long tradition of fostering entrepreneurship in Massachusetts. There’s no better demonstration of this mission than TiE-Boston’s annual conference. This year’s conference, puts “startups” at the core of the event, as the organization seeks to help early-stage entrepreneurs along their journey to launch and build their own companies.
With upwards of 600 annual attendees, the conference boasts three tracks focusing on the “Entrepreneur’s Journey”, “Tales from the Startup Trenches”, along with traditional insight into “What’s Hot in Tech and Pharma in 2015".
In addition, the TiE Sharks event provides several companies with the opportunity to negotiate with some of Boston’s top angel investors for access to valuable capital. All in all, the tradition of mentorship and advice from some of the industry’s most successful and influential entrepreneurs serves as a foundation for TiE StartupCon’s 2015 theme of “Entrepreneurs Helping Entrepreneurs.”
This year, Mintz Levin's Scott Samuels is moderating a panel entitled, "Fundraising: When and Why to Raise Money from Angels, VCs, Strategics, and Friends."
