Program Format

TiE University has developed into an award-winning program that brings together university entrepreneurs with successful business leaders across Georgia to perfect their pitch, develop their product or service and provide a holistic approach to their startup. The teams get mentored by real-world entrepreneurs and compete in a mock/practice round and a qualifying round in Q1. The final teams then go onto compete for cash prizes at TiE University Atlanta Finals, a pitch competition held every Spring. The winning team then goes on to the TiE University Global Pitchfest Competition held in early May to compete with other TiE University teams from around the globe.
