INNOVATION NETWORK

A key benefit of Crowd Companies membership is our Innovation Network, a curated collection of startups and other ecosystem partners. Get to know vetted startups and organizations who can help you move from idea to action.


Our hand-selected network includes sharing economy and maker movement startups, niche VC firms, recognized thought leaders, and other valuable contacts.

We save you time by taking briefings from startups, assessing their ability to work with larger companies, and offering direct introductions to these innovators.

We will continue to cycle in new startups, depending on council need.
