Tiecon back in offline mode, to be held on April 30 in Chandigarh | Chandigarh News


Chandigarh: The seventh edition of TiECon 2022 will be held offline this year on April 30 and the theme will be “Adding Flight to Entrepreneurship”. A large number of entrepreneurs, mainly from the northern region, will provide funding and mentorship to startups. Start up India and Invest India are among the 35 organizations supporting TiECON.
Jitin Talwar, Chairman of TiE Chandigarh, told a press conference that this time the event will focus on the opportunities and challenges faced by young and emerging entrepreneurs. According to him, TiECON-2022 will also see discussions and exchange of ideas between more than 1,500 carefully selected participants and around 50 speakers, who will interact with budding entrepreneurs and around 150 companies participating in the exhibition booths and the Startup Bazaar. .
More than 50 startups from Punjab and Chandigarh will showcase their products in a pavilion called “Start Up Bazaar”. These startups are spread across different industries such as IT, fitness, arts, edtech, education, e-commerce, and skills development.
Talwar said, “The conference will focus on aspiring entrepreneurs and focus on issues facing the startup ecosystem in the northern region. Our idea is to nurture startups from the North, so that they can emerge as one of the potential employment opportunities for young people. The platform will also offer startups a chance to meet successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists and decision makers.
Robin Aggarwal, Vice President, TIE, Chandigarh Chapter and Director of Learning Paths School, said, “The Northern region has many educational institutions but employment opportunities are limited. Punjabis all over the world are known for their entrepreneurial skills. So, when there is an abundance of manpower, there is immense potential for startups. Budding entrepreneurs need good advice and political support. With TieCon 2022, we are taking a step forward in this direction.
Ritika Singh, Secretary General of TIE, said the list of speakers includes public leaders, heads of government, diplomats, entrepreneurs, ecosystem builders, blue chip entrepreneurs, mentors, innovators, investors, educators, journalists, policy makers and different funding agencies such as banks and angel networks.
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema are also invited.
