The world is in Network. Strategically thinking about the complex Influence and Relationship Networks on topics of interest is what makes Tree Intelligence unique.

Understand who are the internal and external influencers in your organization, how the narratives and issues of your interest flow, and how your Brand or campaign can strengthen and strategically position itself in Network mode.



And we have been talking about this phenomenon for a long time, which gains momentum in our increasingly hyper-connected societies.

Since our foundation in 2011, we have declared the importance of Strategic Network Thinking® and how it should be oriented towards understanding the communities that are built (online and offline) in relation to specific themes and interests.

Our CEO, Organizational and Digital Anthropologist Ignacio García presents these concepts at TEDx Talk Campinas.

Check it out in the video below:

“Networks have never been so fashionable, they are widely used as a metaphor for the spirit of the times we live in: The Age of Networks, The Network Society, The Age of (Hyper) Connectivity are some of the terms used to describe how our society currently thinks and relates.

However, from an anthropological point of view, societies have developed themselves in Network mode since their beginnings, predating by at least two million years the cybercultural phenomena of social media. The need to connect, to belong and to build a group identity, that is, to relate in large Social Networks between individuals, is what makes us human”

Thus, for Tree Intelligence to unravel, monitor and manage Networks, whether online, offline, internal, external or integrated, first of all, it is necessary to strategically understand the social dynamics among the different Stakeholders that compose them.


Why is thinking strategically about the Network essential?

When analyzing Stakeholders in lists, and not in Network, it is not possible to observe how they influence each other and how narratives flow, which causes one to lose the vision and strategic position that they really have, regardless of their formal power.


In this aspect, thinking and mostly acting in Network is a much more efficient way to achieve your business goals.


How does Tree Intelligence Map, Monitor and help to develop Strategic Networks?

We have developed pioneering methodologies and proprietary technologies so that the Mapping, Monitoring, Management and Development of internal, external and integrated Networks could be applied to several types of organizations, industries, areas and regions of the world.

We have a global Network of experts and partners who complement our systemic approach with their knowledge in a customized and sophisticated way.

Tree Intelligence is a global technology, consulting and strategy company specialized in Social Intelligence and a pioneer in the application of Network Intelligence to business.

Through the innovative integration of the methodological tripod that unites techniques from Network Science, Data Science and Netnography, we develop exclusive methodologies and technologies for Mapping, Monitoring, Management and Development of strategies for multi- internal, external and integrated stakeholder Networks.

Our principles and values


Cooperation is the basis of every Network.


Through it, organizations are more competitive and adaptable to the networked world.


Cooperation needs to be based on motivating links


which enable energized cooperation that goes beyond positions and functions.


Innovating is the key to more adaptive, competitive and sustainable organizations.


More than clever ideas, it is essential to have networks capable of turning initiatives into reality. For Tree Intelligence, innovation is the emerging property of a cooperative and energized Network!
