PresenTense PresenTense employs entrepreneurship as a tool to grow local economies, enrich community life and solve critical issues facing society. We aim to make entrepreneurship accessible to all and accelerate social impact in communities across the globe. Over the past 7 years, we have run more than 50 accelerators and launched over 600 ventures. We do this in the following ways: Venture Accelerators train entrepreneurs and develop leaders to build creative solutions that meet local and societal needs. Innovation Workshops catalyze organizations to enable their staff and/or constituents to innovate from within. Entrepreneurship Consulting advises organizations and government on how to nurture innovation and creativity through their programs, policies and ecosystems. PresenTense partners with foundations and organizations, introducing them to a community of doers destined to lead us into the future. Consider PresenTense a natural incubator for research and development!
