Testimonials

TiE Angels was one of the earliest groups to recognize the market demand for a secure Data Stream Network and the potential of PubNub to address that need. Their participation in our financing, and their amazing network of senior execs, has been instrumental in helping PubNub grow beyond 1,000 customers across 60 countries, 250 million connected devices, and 3 million transactions per second.”

Todd Greene

Founder & CEO, PubNub
An exceptional platform to learn, teach and network — all in a day’s work.

Zain Jeewanjee

Escalon Services (2017)
The best experience — a global opportunity — for entrepreneurs to learn, share, engage, create, commit and accelerate the execution of their global vision and mission.

Richard Philip Eastburn

Founder/CEO Global Immersion Technologies LLC (2017)
TiEcon helps bring companies, thought leaders, investors, innovators and entrepreneurs together on [machine learning] better than any other organization in the US.

Manju Devadas

CEO, Pluto7 (2017)
So glad I came. I’m pretty jaded about how useful conferences are but your panelists have been outstanding.

CMO Inflect

Attendee (2017)
Sponsoring TiE CMO Inflect was a great opportunity for us to share our brand and get in front of thought leaders and marketing leaders across Silicon Valley, and… great to share the opportunity to participate.

Vinay Bhagat

Founder & CEO, TrustRadius (CMO Inflect, 2017)
If you want to be big, if you want to be relentless, you’ve got to get involved with TiE because I will tell you why...when they asked me to come speak, I am here because it is [one of] the most effective, biggest, connected groups in the world.”

Jeffrey Hayzlett

former CMO of Kodak (CMO Inflect, 2017)
For startups in India, I want to thank TiE for its valued suggestions, for creating a more supportive environment for startups. I know you will succeed on the strength of your genius and enterprise, but when you need a helping hand, or when you find hurdles in your way, we will be there for you.

Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi
