Who We Are
The original Global Fellows include Nobel Laureates and winners of the Von Neumann and Kondratieff Medals. They are the hand-picked advisors of the late pioneering techno-billionaire, legendary business dean and National Medal of Technology winner George Kozmetsky. With their areas of expertise ranging from poverty alleviation, women’s rights and opportunities, to technology entrepreneurship and space exploration, TANDO Global Fellows open new avenues for thinking about global problems, evaluating promising technologies, and assessing market opportunities, connecting these to advance the public good.
Our Mission

TANDO identifies new scientific and technological advances that hold the most potential for social benefit and accelerates their valorization through commercial, government, and NGO channels.
