Who we are

We are a Brazilian startup aiming to reduce information asymmetry when it comes to third and Nth- party security and compliance risk management in a cooperative and scalable fashion.

Organizations of all sizes have increasingly used outsourcing and third parties  to deliver value. Using partners, sales channels and specialized suppliers, it is possible to improve quality and speed-to-market. 

However, along with benefits, it is often necessary to share sensitive data with third parties. It isn’t enough for each company to assess its own environments in isolation. An incident in one company can negatively impact the rest of its supply chain.

Thinking about ensuring compliance and security throughout this chain inspired the creation of Tenchi. It was founded in October 2019 by Felipe Bouças, Alexandre Sieira and Dani Dilkin. They subsequently developed a platform that continuously monitors relationships in real-time, simplifying decision making.

Connecting and enabling communication across the entire supply chain has considerable benefits. By connecting companies and their suppliers in a trusted environment, Tenchi enables trusted relationships to form across the technology ecosystem.
