We bring entrepreneurial minds together in the mountains. Pando offers targeted programming and content to meet the constantly-evolving needs of our member base, and, in turn, we create an atmosphere for entrepreneurial success.
Pando and Kiln are a great combo because we share the same mission - to connect like minded people to support entrepreneurial growth and community. Pando's programming and events give Kiln members even more access to knowledge sharing opportunities and connecting with leaders in the Utah ecosystem.
"My first company outgrew Park City in 2013 after seven years with offices on Main Street. We were forced to relocate the company to Salt Lake City. I'm a supporter of Pando because I want businesses that start in mountain towns to have the option to stay and grow there."
"BioUtah is Utah’s only trade association for Life Sciences. Our membership ranges from large multi-national corporations to very early stage startup. Our partnership with Pando Labs was based on our mutual affection and interest in the startup phase of companies."

"When I moved here from Chicago I was looking to find my tribe of like minded entrepreneurs, and innovators with the entrepreneurial mindset seeking to collaborate and enjoy the life in a mountain town - Pando has been the key organization in connecting me with this tribe of entrepreneurs here in the mountains of Utah."

No you do not. Although the majority of our members live in the greater Park City area, many have other ties to our community. Second homes, regular vacations, business offices, family and more. If you believe in the community and what we are building, we encourage you to apply.
Not at this time. Although we will bring in additional verticals in the future, we have not made a decision on opening an accelerator for our membership. We do have connections to accelerator programs through our members and partners to help with your goals.
Not at this time. Although we will bring in additional verticals in the future, we have not made a decision on taking on investments from our membership. Plenty of our members are in the investment community and can help with your fundraising goals.
Absolutely and thank you for thinking of us! There is a referral field in the application form where they can mention your name.
At Pando we are a give-and-take community.

No. Pando is a community that supports one another and is looking to build relationships that create a positive impact on all members. Through being a contributing member, networking is an affect, however, we are not a networking community. We believe the world has plenty of those. In fact, leave your business card in the car and come contribute to the community and you’ll receive the best networking effort you could ask for.
