Networking events and entrepreneurship conferences are a great way for women entrepreneurs to meet potential investors as well executives to join their leadership team. Many entrepreneurs look forward to certain conferences each year to find partners, clients and prospective board members. One of the more popular annual entrepreneurship conferences is TiECon, put together by the The Indus Entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley.
Scheduled for May 6 – 7, 2016 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California; and featuring more than 200 speakers and 100 exhibitors, TiECon 2016 is expected to draw more than 4,600 registrants at the two-day event. TiECon 2016 will offer multiple tracks on cutting edge technology topics; including Future of Cloud and IT, the Internet of Things, Data Economy, Trending Technologies and Social Entrepreneurship.
Many of the prominent speakers at this year’s conference are women—including Diane Greene, senior vice president of Google’s cloud businesses; Lorie Wigle, general manager at Intel; and Varsha Rao, head of global operations at Airbnb.
Additionally, the conference will explore topics relevant to a startup; like talent acquisition and retention, funding options, and differentiating the company and products in a competitive environment. This year, TiE50, the coveted awards program for startups will screen more than 2,300 applications from 17 countries. The top 100 startups selected will attend TiECon 2016 and present before an audience.
