TIE Women

Only 2% of venture capital went to female founders in 2021, despite the proven ROI of women-led startups, and steady growth in female entrepreneurship. We have to change that.

TIE Women was created to remove barriers to access and funding for female entrepreneurs and provide a global platform for women-owned startups. As a chapter, we actively seek opportunities to elevate and empower female voices, support women-owned businesses, and ensure female representation.

TIE Women Pitch Competition

Our annual competition provides mentorship, networking and funding to female entrepreneurs in Tampa Bay. The top 3 winners from Tampa Bay are invited to pitch against TIE Women winners from around the world for a chance to win $100,000 in equity-free prize money.
