TiE unveils plan to scale Indian SMEs


The Silicon Valley chapter of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) Wednesday announced an initiative to scale Indian start-ups globally and help them reach $1 billion in value.

“Our Billion Dollar Babies initiative aims to help select Indian product start-ups reach $1 billion in global enterprise value by leveraging our reach and resources,” the US-based non-profit association said in a statement from the Bay Area in California.

Beginning January, the programme will take select start-ups to Silicon Valley to participate in the TiE CIO (chief information officers) Forum and receive help with legal, accounting, hiring, marketing and other company-building tasks.
