2018 Annual Reflections

As we entered the new year, we took the time to reflect on the past in order to ensure our prior experiences continue to inform the future direction of Tondo Foundation. Rather than keep these reflections internal, we’ve decided to share them along with updates on our journey so far. We hope that these reflections and learnings may be of interest and, ideally, even useful to our partners, both existing and prospective, as well as other funders and investors.
