Thunderbird Angel Network

The Thunderbird Angel Network (TAN) was developed from the vision of people associated with the Walker Center for Global Entrepreneurship to create a robust network of investors and entrepreneurs among Thunderbird’s network of alumni, students and friends. The organization serves as a forum for its members of accredited investors seeking opportunities to invest in early-starge or start-up companies. Educational opportunities are offered to its members from Thunderbird faculty and national and local experts on topics related to different facets of Angel investing. 

Parties interested in joining the network or participating in the dinner meeting need to reserve a space online at or contact TAN at
