it’s how we come together,
that sets PCN apart

Our members gather with intentionality to learn, invest, collaborate, and yes… have a really good time. We screen an average of 40 companies for each monthly meeting, providing 2-4 early stage, industry diverse entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their company, vision and funding needs to our member-base. Our investors look for compelling product and service differentiation, strong management teams, transparency of all business and market realties, and ideally - a 3-5 year exit plan.

As an added benefit, PCN helps our entrepreneurs build significant businesses and may participate as active or passive investors. We support startups with key relationships to accelerate their growth and offer to mentor and coach those entrepreneurs in whose businesses we invest. Additionally, we may serve on their boards, assist in strategic planning and connect them to proven industry specific - finance, branding, marketing, operations, engineering and management resources - if requested.
