The African Network is a global
non-profit organization with the sole
mandate of fostering entrepreneurship
and technology among people of
African descent.

TAN was founded in Silicon Valley, California in 2004 to provide a support structure and network for entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, and community leaders worldwide. The objective of TAN is to leverage all available resources through networking, education, training, and mentoring to develop entrepreneurship and enable community development among all people of African descent.
TAN accomplishes these aspects of fostering entrepreneurship and community development through two of its programs: TAN Conference (TANCon) and TAN Empowerment program (TEP). TANCon is now organized annually on two continents - Africa and USA.
