TiE Bangalore launches Entrepreneur Accelerator Program

TiE Bangalore has put together the Entrepreneur Accelerator Program (TiE-EAP or “tie-up”). TiE-EAP is designed to help companies get through the seed-stage of evolution and graduate to first round of funding from venture capital firms.

The program brings together an ecosystem of early stage investors and mentors, as well as an array of support service providers such as incubation centers, legal and accounting services and recruitment services – and connects them with pre-screened and motivated entrepreneurs.

To begin with, TiE – EAP intends to select between three and five entrepreneurs to actively assist through this program and is inviting 2-3 page business plan summaries from interested entrepreneurs and startups. For more information, visit or contact Nishant Malhotra at
