TiEcon 2015 Announces MindTickle Inc as a 2015 TiE50 Winner and One of the World’s Most Promising Tech Start-Ups

San Francisco, CA, May 27, 2015 –(PR.com)– MindTickle Inc is excited to announce that it has been recognized as a “2015 TiE50 Winner” at world’s largest conference for entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs conference, TiEcon held on May 15th and 16th, 2015 at Santa Clara, California. The TiE50 program is open to all technology startups worldwide.

“TiE 50 has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide. We screened 2716 companies this year and announced the most innovative 160 companies as 2015 TiE50 Top Start-ups. This pool of the very best-of-the-breed is again subjected to another round of rigorous judging to pick out the ultimate 50 winners proudly carrying the 2015 TiE50 Winner recognition. A star attraction of the conference is TiE50 presentations. Audiences are treated to amazing ideas and innovative technologies” said Ram K. Reddy, the program chair.

MindTickle is the first end-to-end sales readiness solution that combines powerful gamification, social learning and analytics tools to help sales reps ramp up faster and perform at the top of their game. It’s the secret behind some of world’s fastest growing companies like AppDynamics, Avalara, Bloomreach, Cloudera, Couchbase, Ola Cabs and Rocket Fuel – who are finding MindTickle not only highly effective, but also easy to use and manage.

“We are delighted to receive this recognition, particularly amidst such an impressive group of start-ups. At MindTickle, we appreciate the specific challenges that face fast growing product companies today, that’s why we launched the sales readiness platform at the Dreamforce conference last year. The cloud-based SaaS model has shrunk the product lifecycle, with new features and updates coming every few weeks, as a result the way sales teams sell is undergoing a radical transformation. MindTickle has been designed to help growing sales teams scale while boosting the sales productivity of their sales reps,” said Krishna Depura, Co-founder & CEO of MindTickle.

“It is unique in terms of rigor of selection and the broad scope of companies that it reviews for this award and is one of TiE Silicon Valley’s most successful programs. It is also worth mentioning that this is the only awards recognition in technology to be held by a large global non-profit organization with no fees. A team of about 60 highly accomplished domain experts, senior executives, accomplished and experienced venture capitalists, and tech entrepreneurs come together to form a screening and judging team,” said Venktesh Shukla, President of TiE Silicon Valley.

When presenting to the panel of judges at TiE50, MindTickle shared its vision of leadership in the new category called sales readiness. On the same lines of how disruptive players like Hubspot and Marketo have consolidated inbound marketing, and Gainsight has established leadership in customer success, MindTickle is well on its way to lead the sales readiness space. “Over a period of next few years, we see several point solutions which have cluttered the market give way to MindTickle’s end-to-end platform that provides comprehensive set of features, but more importantly, provides an integrated view of all the data. The possibilities with data science in sales enablement are boundless, but that has not been possible due to the piece meal approach prevalent in most companies today. MindTickle is soon going to be the next most important purchase for a sales leader once they have deployed a CRM. And that is great for us because MindTickle becomes even more valuable when integrated into the CRM,” remarked Mohit Garg, Co-founder & CCO of MindTickle.
