TiE Energy Launches
(March 5, 2015) TiE Houston has officially launched an Energy Special Interest Group within the TiE Community. This new initiative, led by TiE Houston Board Member and President of iEducate, Dr. Roopa Gir, aims to strengthen entrepreneurship in the energy sector by leveraging the strong technology of the entrepreneurial community within TIE Houston and TIE Global (spread across 61 chapters in 18 countries). Our goal is to allow energy entrepreneurs access to private funding and corporate leadership.
Entrepreneurship has always creatively destroyed the status quo and delivered innovative breakthroughs when times are tough, such as the current oil price environment. The launch event, “Innovating in the Oil and Gas Industry: Opportunities for Entrepreneurs” was held at the HESS Club in Houston and attended by a sellout crowd of almost 200 technologists, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and industry professionals.
