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.
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.
