The Economist recently cited in the article "Global Heroes" here, The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) as one of the premier entrepreneurial organizations in the world.
I am proud to say that I am a charter member of the organization. TiE (see global website here) is a non-profit organization with the mission to - "... to foster Conscious Entrepreneurship Globally by Educating, Mentoring and Networking."
The above article states:
"TiE was founded in Silicon Valley in 1992 by a group of Indian transplants who wanted to promote entrepreneurship through mentoring, networking and education. Today the network has 12,000 members and operates in 53 cities in 12 countries, but it continues to be anchored in the Valley."
TiE is hosting the world's leading entrepreneurial conference in Silicon Valley on May 15th and 16th, 2009. See details here.
I recommend the TiECON 2009 conference and the TiE organization to all entrepreneurs, successful and budding alike.
