    Established in June 2006, the Tacoma Angel Network is a non-profit alliance of accredited investors, who are successful entrepreneurs, retired executives, and other business leaders in the greater Tacoma and South Puget Sound area. TAN investors provide investment capital, strategic advice and mentoring to early-stage companies or companies embarking on major expansion efforts. TAN activities seek to improve the economic quality of life in the Tacoma and South Puget Sound region by supporting local entrepreneurs in building strong businesses that create new jobs and stimulate the regional economy. The founding sponsor for TAN is the Tacoma Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. Individuals who apply for TAN membership should do so with the intention of either making at least two investments, or investing $50,000 in early stage businesses, per year.
