Early-Stage Funding For Globally Viable Ventures
The Thunderbird Angel Network (TAN) is a dynamic group of accredited investors who are affiliated
with the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Our members include T-bird alumni, professors,
and friends, as well as members of the Phoenix startup community.
Through TAN, investors gain access to early-stage companies that have the potential to grow rapidly.
The Network is based at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, a hotspot for global business.
Our members are interested in both domestic and international deals.
TAN hosts dinner meetings the third Thursday of January, March, May, September, and November.
All applications are screened through Gust.com and by the TAN selection committee before a company
is asked to present at a TAN dinner. If one or more members show interest in a presenting company,
further due diligence and deal terms are developed. Members act on their own behalf and make
their own individual investment decisions.
