TiE Women - Mentors

About TiE Women

"Project AIRSWEE is seeking mentors."

Dear Woman Leader,

You have always wanted to make a difference and you already have!

TiE Global invites you to join TiE Global’s Project - All-India Road Show on Women’s Economic Empowerment through Entrepreneurship (Project AIRSWEEE).

This is a new program to unleash value creation amongst aspiring young women in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in India. The initiative has received funding support from the US Mission in India, U.S. Department of State.

Under Project AIRSWEE, TiE Global will conduct 5 workshops in 5 cities in India, which include Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu), Warangal (Andhra Pradesh), Jaipur (Rajasthan), Nagpur (Maharashtra) and Durgapur (West Bengal). The program will enroll 25 aspiring women entrepreneurs in each city, selected through a rigorous screening process. These 125 mentees will then be introduced to India and US based mentors, who will guide the participants on various aspects of Entrepreneurship. After these workshops, 5 participants from each city will receive intensive mentoring for an additional 6 months to develop some of their ideas into sustainable businesses. All 125 participants will be invited to join TiE’s robust eco-system as members.


We are seeking US based mentors and experts who want to join this movement and make a change! 8 US experts will be required to travel to India (estimated travel around February 2017) to participate in these workshops and to interact with local organizations and leaders to help develop the eco-system, which promotes women entrepreneurs. An additional 5 US based experts will be required to interface online and remotely with the 25 selected mentees, once a month, for the ensuing six months (estimated from March 2017 to August 2017). TiE Global will cover travel expenses. A modest honorarium will also be offered as a token of appreciation after the program is completed. Mentors will be selected in consultation with the US Embassy in India.

We will host an Information and Q&A session on Friday, October 21, 2016 from 12 noon to 1 pm Eastern.
