The inspiration for Treehouse comes from the excellent book “Give and Take” by Adam Grant (including the networking approach of Adam Rifkin) and the perfect treehouse (which turns out to be a good analogy for building startups).
Treehouse was launched in December 2017 and held its first event in January 2018. Our first blog post is also a good introduction to the history of Treehouse:

Inspiration For Treehouse
TreehouseTM is a network of cool people that empowers and inspires its members to take meaningful action via a series of small, invitation-only, nontraditional events.
- #People – We welcome people (including academics, advisors, change-makers, civic leaders, creatives, CxOs, entrepreneurs, founders, innovators, investors, and, most importantly, GIVERS) of every gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and marital status; of every age, race, citizenship, and nationality; of every mental and physical ability; and of every economic and social status and political affiliation.
- #Action – We take action by helping (including doing favors, giving back, mentorship, paying it forward, referrals, and sharing our talents, and volunteering) each other and our communities.
- #Events – We host nontraditional events that are both online and in person, both public and private.
