Transcend Network was started on one core belief:
the future of learning and work will be more global than we can even imagine today.

While there are many accelerators and funds supporting the sector, none of them are global by design. We want to shift from a local perspective of education and work, to one that connect the work of founders globally.

We founded Transcend Network to be that change.
