Join Our Associate Community
At the very core of The Technology Investors Advisory Service is a community of experts, not just technologist, but also all the ancillary commercial disciplines that are necessary in order to nurture healthy, high growth businesses that investors are confident to support.
TIAS exists to support an Associate Community and co-ordinate the promotion of their expertise directly to the businesses and investors that need them.
The community also exists to nurture each member's own consultancy practices and provide a peer to peer environment that supports each other and from which as yet unimagined collaborations might emerge.
The majority of our associates are micro-business owners and consultants, selling the knowledge and experience they have built up over long careers, often with big name corporations. Many of the commercial and operational challenges faced by self-employed experts having to both run a company and deliver the company's services can be mitigated through shared community resources and group buying power for business services.
Benefits of the TIAS Associate Programme includes:
A more compelling sales pitch :
Pro-Active lead generation
A more comprehensive delivery capability
Access to TIAS supplier agreements with end users
Commercial de-risking for your clients
The ability to " punch above your weight" in sales negotiations
Support for your own company

Technologists :Technical experts are the cornerstone of the community and as such we do not charge for Technologist membership, we do, however, expect every member to submit at least one piece of original thought leadership content to the community every year ( ideally more often !)
Business Consultants: We value commercial expertise in the technology sector, everyone benefits from TIAS maintaining a comprehensive pool of industry specific experience. We charge a small monthly fee for Business Consultant Members ( must be self employed or micro business owners) , this fee can be waived where the Business Consultant is generating qualified business opportunities for the community.
Professional Services Practices: eg Lawyer, Accountants etc. We welcome the support of our professional services partners for the associate community. Packages and sponsorship options on request.
Growth Ecosystem Partners: eg incubators, accelerators and fund matching services We welcome the support of organisations and businesses serving the innovation and investment community. Packages and sponsorship options on request.
