CHENNAI: TiE — a non profit organisation — will be holding its eighth summit here on October 31. The theme for this year’s convention is ‘Entrepreneurship 360’. The event will host over 1,200 delegates, including thought leaders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, regulators, bankers academicians and students. Talking about the event recently,  Lakshmi Narayanan, president of TiE Chennai and member, Board of Trustees, TiE Global, said “TiE Chennai has always aimed at understanding the path of an entrepreneur and supported them beyond boundaries in attaining their vision.” He added further,  “TiE Chennai has always aimed to balance between well established business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs.”

One of the main projects of TiE this year is to encourage setting up incubator programmes in colleges and encourage students to start their firms of interest. He said that today students were willing to join start ups, but they did not have a back up, “Most professors, who retire from universities like Stanford, join as advisors of their student’s start ups, which strengthens the growth of  the firm. We wish to encourage a similar practice here too,” he said. The organisation has tied up with around forty colleges, and expects a huge crowd at the event.
