About The TiE International Business Plan Contest

The TiE International Business Plan Competition is the world's richest BPlan contest organised by TiE in association with Rice University. This competition provides professionals, entrepreneurs and graduate-level University students a chance to compete in World's largest and most successful Business Plan Competition. Last year, TiE reached a great milestone with a submission from TiE Kolkata, BetaGlide, who took home over $1million in investment at Rice University.

Like last year, this edition too has a 2 track competition in which teams can choose either the Investor (Open) Track or the Rice University (Student) Track.
