The top 100 finalists showcased at TiEcon and the TiE50 award winners were chosen based on those presentations. The TiE50 track record since its inception in May 2009 shows that 94% of the winners and finalists have been funded, attracting billions in investments. Many of these companies have been acquired, merged or gone public.
“In the six short years since inception, the TiE50 program has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide for this recognition,” said Venktesh Shukla, president of TiE, Silicon Valley. “It is unique in terms of rigor of selection and the broad scope of companies that it reviews for this award and is one of TiE Silicon Valley’s most successful programs.
