American Tamil Entrepreneurs Association (ATEA) has three regions based in the US West coast (Silicon Valley), East Coast (North East), and Midwest/Central (Chicago). Each region has one or more chapters serving the respective region.

Silicon Valley / West Region

ATEA Silicon Valley is home to many successful startups and innovative technology companies such as Apple, Adobe, Cisco, Ebay, Facebook, Google, Paypal and Tesla. Silicon valley is considered a prime center of innovation by the entire world. Our community members play a key role in many of these organizations as key executives and technology experts.

ATEA Silicon Valley region / chapter aims to leverage the proximity and access to the technology, startup and venture capital firms to educate, motivate and empower the community members to become entrepreneurs.

Here is the Year End letter of 2018 activities sent by Silicon Valley chapter.

North East / East Region

The east coast, being the nerve center of finance and advertising (New York / New Jersey), key base for pharmaceuticals (New Jersey – Philadelphia corridor), and insurance, biotech and technology cluster (Boston / Connecticut), will play a key role in ATEA’s mission of fostering entrepreneurship among the community members.

Currently ATEA NE events are organized by NY/NJ, Philadelphia / Delaware Valley and Washington DC chapters.

Midwest / Central Region

Midwest Central region of ATEA serves the Chicago and other areas such as St. Louis and Dallas.
