The eighth edition of TiE entrepreneurial summit, Asia's largest annual conference of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, will witness one of the largest gathering of the investor community.

The event, being held here for the first time, will witness participation of various eminent venture capitalists, private equities and angel investors.

There will be an investor power panel and panel discussions on the current trends to enable the startups and existing entrepreneurs' community to understand the potential opportunities which the investors see, said a TiE statement.

TiE was founded in 1992 in Silicon Valley by a group of successful entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and senior professionals with roots in the Indus region with a mission to foster entrepreneurship globally through mentoring, networking and education to focus on generating and nurturing next generation of entrepreneurs.
