Who is Tendrel for?

Tendrel is geared toward systems entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs are dedicated to not only increasing their organizations' impact but also to transforming systems that perpetuate the very problems they're trying to solve.


What is Tendrel?

Tendrel is a global professional association for social entrepreneurs. Through frequent connection and open exchange, Tendrel members build the underlying advocacy infrastructure necessary for social entrepreneurs to shape the way we approach social change.

How does Tendrel amplify impact?

Tendrel is built to change the way the social sector operates. Tendrel facilitates connection, exchange, and creativity among its members on both personal and professional levels through four key approaches: 


Networking, training, events, and engagement opportunities for Tendrel members and their families through partnerships with leading organizations creating social impact.


Monthly, confidential, and local peer groups for social entrepreneurs at similar stages to reflect, share, listen, and support each other through personal and professional growth.


Members’ close collaboration through Tendrel forums and events will build the underlying infrastructure to drive advocacy agendas at the national and global levels.


Knowledge from the community translated into research insights about the sector that will inform advocacy, policy makers, investors, and more.

Tendrel has launched 20 global forums in 30 countries – cities including Boston, San Francisco, Mexico City, Lima, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Manila, Mumbai, New York, and London. With 155 members, we are growing rapidly and plan to launch Forums in Washington, D.C. + Paris + Nairobi in the coming months.
