“Tribetan’s mission is to transform the world by unleashing the power of imagination for all 7 billion of us. Our goal is that the entrepreneurial skillset of manifesting ideas is as universally known as reading, writing and math.”

Many people give up on their dreams, not because they are hard, but because they think they are impossible. Yet in every society, there are people who are successful “applied dreamers.” They are called Entrepreneurs.

Magic is Real

Entrepreneurs take ideas from their imagination everyday and make them real, and as a serial tech entrepreneur, with 7 start-ups, 2 IPOs, and a patent (who also happens to be a black female born in 1968), I would like to say with unique authority that everyone’s dreams are not only possible, but doable.

Imagine a world where everyone has a magic wand, and knows how to use it. Simple to understand and universal in its application, the Tribetan framework can be used by anyone, of any age or education level; to make their ideas real.

Tribetan’s framework, the ROI of Faith, is a step by step process for transforming your imagination into reality, leveraging the currency of faith and connection. Spiritual belief is optional. Faith in ‘others’ is required. The framework is like an ‘idea to reality’ algorithm for entrepreneurs, innovators, disruptors, startups–everyone.

 The Return on Investment of Faith

Tribetan debuted The ROI of Faith, its first speech explaining the framework, at the opening ceremony for Global Entrepreneurship Week in Athens, Greece. The live audience of entrepreneurs were from every region and religion; and was also broadcast to entrepreneurs in 150 countries. Considered risky at the time to bring spiritual concepts to a entrepreneurship summit, it was widely and warmly received.

From that first moment in Greece on November 14, 2014 Tribetan has now reached thousands live, and over one million through broadcasts, solely through word of mouth. Past venues include the Italian Parliament, NYU, Cornell University, The Mexican Embassy, the Creative Business Cup Global Finals, and many many others.

• Live Audiences: 8,000+
• Countries: 100+
• Broadcast Reach: 1 million +
• TV Shows: 3

The Future

Tribetan believes in a world where all people know how to make their imagination real. In this Tribetan world there will be not only be more successful startups; but also increased innovation in every sector of society, from education to medicine to art. This future also means there will be more people doing what they love, less fighting and more peace. A win for us all. If you are interested in speeches, lectures, workshops or collaborating, please contact

About Tribetan

Tribetan was founded by Tiffany Norwood a successful serial entrepreneur, global thought leader and a patented inventor. Ms. Norwood is one of the pioneers of digital satellite radio; as part of the start-up team of WorldSpace/XM Radio; as well as, an early collaborator in MPEG technology, later to be known as MP3 and MP4. She personally raised nearly a billion dollars in her 20s to fund this new global communication platform.

She recognized that most frameworks related to entrepreneurship, like lean canvas and agile development, were for the product or the company. What was missing was something for the person, the entrepreneur themself. Our Tribetan framework; a step-by-step algorithm for turning imagination into reality for any person trying to manifest an idea, was captured and codified based on her 30 year history of startups.

The market realized the framework’s value, and our audiences came to us. We have now reached more than 9,000 people live, 150+ countries  and over one million people through broadcast. All through word of mouth. Venues have included NYU, the Italian Parliament, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Creative Business Cup, USOW, the Mexican Embassy, KMPG UK, Forte, and many others. Organizations working with Tribetan have included accelerators, incubators, universities, companies and others; with an interest in entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, imagination, innovation, startups, the skills of successful entrepreneurs, global entrepreneurship and leadership success.

To learn more about our framework, we have included many resources on this website and will be adding even more in the future. If you are interested in speeches, lectures, workshops or collaborating, please contact
