TiE Pune was founded on the belief that nurturing entrepreneurs will lead to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and will encapsulate the true spirit of giving back to the community. It was late C.K. Prahalad, Chief Mentor of TiE who said, “Mentoring is an essential part of building an entrepreneurial culture. More importantly, it is a true reflection of the spirit of giving by charter members.”
TiE Pune has been running the following programs for mentoring and nurturing Pune start-ups:
One-on-one mentoring program: TiE Pune members derive the benefit of having a one-on-one mentoring with one of the TiE Pune Charter Members who are active mentors. Mentoring right from idea validation to scaling up is provided to the mentees.
TiE Pune Nurture Program: Nurture is a rigorous process-led program for mentoring start-ups where-in we strive to create positive change in companies by inculcating discipline in all areas of entrepreneurship. A set of ‘mentors’ – seasoned entrepreneurs themselves, undertake the job of guiding start-ups in various aspects of business. Besides helping companies in creating sharply differentiated business strategies, they are also coached in several aspects including team composition and leadership, business ethics, planning processes, competition mapping, networking and fund raising
