Transformational Enterprise Network
From Handouts to Handshakes: The place of business in ending poverty

This ground breaking central London day conference is an event set up by TEN in partnership with Angello; Christian Aid Salt Network; Openwell and Transformational SME. Our partners and co-hosts are all Christian organisations supporting enterprise solutions to poverty.
The aim of all five co-hosts is to inspire Christians with a business background (entrepreneurs, investors, advisors) to use their skills and resources to alleviate poverty.
The day will include a Bible-based keynote from international impact entrepreneur, investor, author and speaker Dr Kim Tan. The programme includes stories of entrepreneurs from around the world, a ‘hackathon’ on building an ecosystem to serve the poor, stories of personal involvement and opportunities to network.
Please join us for an inspiring and action-oriented day and invite your friends and colleagues. There are only a maximum of 160 places among all five co-hosts so we expect to be full.
Cost: £123 (including hot lunch and refreshments)
Venue: 10 Union St, London SE1 1SZ
