TiE Boston was founded as an organization "by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs."


We come together to give advice and time to support rising entrepreneurs’ personal and professional growth. Through mentoring, networking, funding and education, the TiE Boston empowers individuals to create economic growth and vibrant careers through building innovative businesses.




Connecting entrepreneurs with experienced founders, angel investors, venture capitalists, and service providers.


Engaging senior innovators and charter members looking to help others navigate their own entrepreneurial journey.


Providing access to relevant business connections, expertise, and potential sources of capital.


Supporting continued learning around industry-specific content from knowledgeable speakers and dialogue-driven events.



TiE ScaleUp was developed to help growth stage companies overcome common obstacles and barriers to scale. Through this program, the community is able to support startups that are in need of the next stage of knowledge, mentoring, connections and resources, to successfully prepare for scale and their next capital raise. Participation in our five-month accelerator is free for admitted companies and we do not take any equity. Over 79 startups have participated in the ScaleUp program – collectively they have raised over $104+ million. To learn more, visit tiescaleup.org or contact Simone LaPray, at simone@boston.tie.org.


TiE Boston Angels provides funding and advice to innovative, technology-driven startup companies addressing a significant market opportunity where the investment can make a difference. We introduce entrepreneurs to potential investors through business plan presentations at monthly meetings. In the past 5 years, our group has invested over $12 million in 49 companies. Attendance at these meetings is only by invitation. To learn more, visit here or contact Managing Director, Vivek Soni, at vivek@boston.tie.org.
