Interview with John Tyler


What a great organization. I had no idea that this even existed. I just enrolled in one of Thunderbird's distance MBA programs to help further my career. Knowing that there is a resource like this is great because I may even go out on my own someday or could want to invest in something. Would you say that a majority of entrepreneurs are Thunderbird alumni?

Hello Katie- thanks for the comment. As we are currently in the development stage of the organization, we are attracting entrepreneurs locally in the southwestern United States and from alumni throughout the US. In the future as we expand globally, we hope to promote the TAN more thoroughly throughout the alumni network to attract more global alumni entrepreneurs.
