Tiffany Norwood is a serial entrepreneur, including seven start-ups, two IPOs and a patent. Her ventures have ranged from the first one-strap backpack, to the automation technology for broadband internet, to a virtual reality gaming platform. In her 20s, she raised $670 million to fund a global digital satellite radio start-up called WorldSpace/XMRadio. After raising the money, she became Head of International Business Development and did some of the first ever digital content licensing deals, including Bloomberg News with Michael Bloomberg and global partnership with CNN. Tiffany also worked closely and was an early collaborator with the Fraunhofer Institute and their MPEG technologies, spending many nights at their labs in Erlangen, Germany in the 90s. MPEG Layer-3 and MPEG Layer-4, are now known as MP3 and MP4 and both WorldSpace and XMRadio went public. By the time Tiffany left WorldSpace it had launched 3 satellites covering the world, had offices in more than seven countries and nearly 400 employees.

As a social entrepreneur, she was a co-founder and corporate vice president of Ethiopia Healthcare Network (EHN), a non-profit that provides full-service healthcare to low-income women and children. As of today, Ethiopia Healthcare Network has treated more than 10,000 patients at its partner clinic in Addis, and built a full service hospital in Dukem, which is operated by the local government.

Currently, Tiffany is the Founder and CEO of Tribetan. In this role, Tiffany speaks around the world on the currency of faith and the science of turning imagination into reality- her dream is that the entrepreneurial skill of manifesting ideas is as well known as reading and math. Some of her past venues include Cornell University, the Italian Parliament, Platform Summit, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Dev4Ethic, KPMG UK, Center of American Studies and others. Tiffany is also Co-Founder of Emortal, a virtual reality e-sports gaming start-up and an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Georgetown University.
