Welcome to TIED

San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge

About Us

Oakland and LA Communities of Color  have a rich history of innovation (from social change to entrepreneurship). Unfortunately, this is often due to historical resource exclusion. Startups and Tech are growing along the West Coast and providing new opportunities. At the same time they are building on archaic structures of exclusion. ‘TIED’ bridges the gap by providing access to valuable resources while developing a network for Startup's most undervalued resource: its people.   

TIED (Tapped In: Equitable Development) is Startup Accelerator / Organization Developer based in Oakland and Los Angeles.

We are a community of socially-driven, community-based founders and consultants. We provide equitable equitable launch and development programs as well as additional consultations and tools to grow organizations. Our clients and partners make us who we are, and our success is measured by their growth and accomplishment.
