TiE50 has partnered with TheBizPlanner as Technology Partners for the infrastructure to run the awards program. All applicants are required to register on TheBizPlanner to apply for the TiE50 Awards Program.

Since the inception of the TiE50 program, 84% of the winners and top startups have been funded with over a billions $. Many of these companies went on to get acquired or had an IPO. At least 29 of the exits were over $100 Million, e.g., FireEye (IPO), Mulesoft (IPO), Pearl Therapeutics (acquired by Astra Zeneca) and Velocloud (acquired by VMware).
