SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/15 -- MentorCloud, the leader in online mentoring, today announced that its partnership with the MentorConnect program at TieCon 2015 (that took place in Santa Clara Convention Center on May 15th and 16th) was a huge success. "With 500 live mentoring sessions on both days combined, this is the largest mentoring event in TiE's 21-year history," said Prakash Narayan, Chair of TiE MentorConnect. "We have had huge success with the MentorCloud platform, that saves us precious time year after year to schedule hundreds of meetings between mentors and entrepreneurs attending this largest annual conference for entrepreneurs," Prakash added.
TiEcon attracts a stellar spectrum of incredible people from successful entrepreneurs to corporate executives to venture capitalists from all over the world who are usually not easily accessible to entrepreneurs. The MentorConnect program at TiEcon makes that access possible using the MentorCloud platform, and directly connects TiEcon attendees to a Mentor of their choice in a structured, scalable manner. "Over the last few years, MentorConnect has turned out to be one of the key draws of TiEcon. MentorConnect and TiE50 are the two gems of TiEcon. To me TiEcon is THE premier ensemble of Talent, Industriousness and Entrepreneurism on an annual basis at a global scale. It's a shining gem in itself," said Sarvajna Dwivedi, Co-Founder & Chief Scientific Officer of Pearl Therapeutics, one of the Mentors that participated in the event.
"Mentoring has been the epicenter of TiE's mission in all our chapters in 61 cities and 18 countries. MentorCloud has developed a great track record in enabling mentoring with great results in Silicon Valley and Hong Kong. I am very excited to now roll out MentorCloud across our entire network. Now mentees across the world can benefit tremendously and help us fulfill our mission to foster entrepreneurship globally," shared Al Kapoor, Chairman of TiE Board and President of Millennium Ventures Group along with Bridgett Comer, Executive Director of TiE Global.
MentorCloud is also announcing the general availability of its 2.0 next generation platform for medium-sized to Fortune 50 companies and entrepreneur networks. "MentorCloud 2.0 platform is being received extremely well by our global customers, and we are super excited by our growing partnership with an organization of global repute like TiE," said Dr. Ravi Gundlapalli, CEO of MentorCloud.
