    Established in the fall of 2010, the Thunderbird Angel Network was born from the vision of people associated with Thunderbird School of Global Management's Walker Center for Global Entrepreneurship to develop a robust network of investors and entrepreneurs among Thunderbird's network of alumni, students and friends. The Thunderbird Angel Network is a medium through which individual investors can consider investments in early-stage companies having the potential to grow rapidly. Such companies may be based in Arizona or in other Southwestern states. The group meets approximately every other month over dinner and listens to presentations from candidate companies. If 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. TAN hosts dinner meetings the third Thursday of January, March, May, September, and November.
