Bringing accountability & support

I've never been in an entrepreneurial community that brought this level of accountability and support to the table. My pool members don't just say they have my back. They back it up with action: Introductions to investors, partners, new teammates; strategic ideas, advice and relentless cheerleading when needed. When one of us wins, we all win.

CEO at SilkTech Biopharmaceuticals

A greater sense of security

Being a part of the Pando community has given me a sense of fellow founder support who are also invested in my professional success, in which that combination is difficult if not nearly impossible to find somewhere else.

Having a pool of like minded founders to bounce ideas off of and interact with on a regular basis allows me to feel a greater sense of security during the difficult times of the entrepreneurial journey.

During my time at Pando I have cultivated numerous relationships across pools that have had a positive impact on both my personal and professional life.

In Pando, everyone wins

Unlike any other forum for founders and senior execs, Pando is a community in which we are all mutually invested in everyone’s success.

The help and connections I have made to help propel my companies forward is second to none. In Pando everyone wins!

Building unique community

Pando has helped me connect with other founders in the healthcare and AI startup ecosystem, share our experience and learn from each other. As the CTO of Inito, I often lean on my fellow poolers to seek feedback, make connections and discuss strategies. The Pando team has done an awesome job in building this unique community.

A ready-made way to grow my network

By joining a pool, [I’m] joining an amazing community of founders, and investing in their (and my) future success. Pando is a ready-made way for me to grow my network of mentors.

Curating community

I said yes to Pando [because] I’m deeply drawn to the idea of curating a community of people who are smart and talented and mutually invested in each other’s success. This is precisely what Pando does.

Working to change the world

Pooling has helped make the uniquely entrepreneurial experience less lonely, and it has surrounded me with others who are challenging the status quo, solving problems, and working to change the world.
