Learnings Labs 


The ANDE Learning Labs are spaces for various professionals to share best practices and new research, discuss hot topics and learn from each other. Labs can also offer an opportunity for joint research or action on key issues.











The Andean Chapter has developed and offered trainings around the following topics:




  • Chapter Meetings

    These meetings provide time for ANDE members to network, learn about, and discuss specific topics such as metrics and impact, as well as to present local studies and share best practices.

  • Roundtables 

    ANDE convenes key stakeholders in order to better understand challenges around particular topics and co-create solutions to these challenges. The roundtables are often complemented by comprehensive research and aim to create collaborative initiatives that ultimately result in better opportunities for small and growing business.

  • Happy Hours

    For members and non-members alike in order to facilitate networking.
