TiE Amaravati Angels is a group of Angels who share a passion for nurturing and investing in early stage businesses, which have the potential to scale and create disproportionate value. By focusing on Startups, the Network also addresses the current acute lack of funds available to early stage companies in Andhra Pradesh. TiE Amaravati Angels seeks to be a major catalyst and driver in creating a robust and vibrant early stage entrepreneurial ecosystem in Andhra Pradesh. It aspires to be the largest player in this ecosystem and the preferred choice and first port of call for any serious entrepreneur with an innovative idea, IP, business plan, a startup venture or one needing the first round of institutional investment. We believe that entrepreneurs starting out require more than just money to succeed. They require close mentoring and inputs on strategy as well as execution and the success rate of early stage businesses can be significantly enhanced if such guidance is available on a constant basis.
