What do entrepreneurs need today?

There has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur and pursue your dreams. Opportunity abounds while amazing new tools are born daily. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Winning in today’s competitive world requires specialized knowledge and skills, networking, a strong team, and access to capital. Fortunately, TiE Denver can help!

The Propel Advantage

The Propel Entrepreneur Development Program can help you and your venture break through to the next level – with support that spans a full year.

Develop a Winning Pitch

The Program’s core is the 6-week Propel accelerator featuring 20-hours of interactive classroom instruction. Participants are further supported by personal mentors and various domain experts. You will refine your business planning, develop a presentation deck and practice pitching it with confidence. Our accelerator closes with a pitch competition to accredited investors, the TiE Denver community, friends and family.

Build Your Network

A strong and diverse professional network is crucial for entrepreneurs. Networking is a pillar of the TiE experience and we can help you connect with new people, resources and opportunities on a local or global scale. TiE Denver enjoys partnerships with many Colorado groups who support entrepreneurship. TiE Global includes 15,000 members (including over 3,000 charter members or mentors) in 61 chapters across 14 countries.

Find Team Members

We encourage you to attend the many events open to TiE Denver members throughout the year designed to foster new connections. Many of our members are and looking to give back, or for their next gig. Some are angel investors. Who knows, you might even find a new teammate or advisor. As a TiE member, you can also supplement your team with year-round access to our pool of experienced mentors.

Connect With Investors

Access to investment capital can mean the difference between a beautiful PowerPoint and a thriving business. The Propel Entrepreneur Development Program helps you connect with local investors in various ways, whether through the accelerator or our “Mach II” investor events for those companies with traction. You can also apply for the TiE-50 Awards — a premier annual awards program keenly contested by thousands of early-stage technology startups worldwide. Several Propel graduates have been selected as TiE-50 winners.

Build Momentum

Investors want to see traction, otherwise known as “quantitative evidence of customer demand”. It’s important to show demand in the marketplace that can be scaled with more resources. All the elements of the Entrepreneur Development Program come together to help you get moving.

Only 10 spots available!

The application window closes April 5th. Participants are reviewed and accepted on a first come, first served basis. Program launches April 10th.
