TiE was founded on the belief that nurturing entrepreneurs will lead to the virtuous cycle of wealth creation and encapsulates 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 SoCal’s Mentoring Program is one of the main priorities and most valuable assets to its members. The role of the Mentoring Program within TiE SoCal is to foster entrepreneurship and to help a member develop their business.
This unique service is a direct result of the time and effort provided by our Charter Member Mentors. For many members, the perspective a Charter Member offers can save years of develop and thousands of dollars in other expenses. Entrepreneurs have an opportunity to interact with the Mentors through the Mentoring Process and if appropriate, build a long-term relationship that is mutually beneficial.
For 2018, TiE SoCal partnered with Mentor Matchmaker to create another three month Entrepreneurship Mentor Program. Ten members will be matched with an experienced Mentor to help achieve up to three professional goals related to entrepreneurship. The program is free for members and requires three short meetings at the Mentor’s office in Q3 2017. Mentor Matchmaker will work with the Mentees to design their goals, match the relationships and ensure progress. Apply for the program by filling out these questions:
