TiE the Knot – Young Turks event, proved to be a great networking event and platform to connect with investors.TIE team has been doing really wonderful work by supporting the start-up ecosystem prevalent in country

Anand Shahani (Wedmegood) –

TiE The Knot is an awesome platform for generating great PR for your startup, as well as showcasing to a set of active funds and angels. However I would say one of the biggest take-homes is the feedback received over multiple rounds of perfecting your pitch, and the direct feedback you get from about 25 top business minds

Dr Ashvini Jakhar (Edu4share)-

TiE the Knot is a great platform for startups to get mentorship, recognition and funding like none other. Senior members of TiE team ( Gita Dang in my case) mentor shortlisted startups’ team to ensure that the idea is well represented to investors. Today, We are funded and I have a great network of mentors, investors and fellow entrepreneurs, all because of TiE the Knot event.
