I am so happy to have found Pando. I recently made the transition from the corporate life to the tech start-up world. It has been great to have access to a network of entrepreneur and start-up leadership in my backyard. The combination of the active Park City lifestyle with the ecosystem of start up founders make the Pando community truly unique.
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."
I stumbled on Pando in my first weeks in Utah and immediately felt at home. There is a huge variety of entrepreneurs in the group from many industries and backgrounds but everyone has always been welcoming and open. We network, yes, but we also solve problems, present ideas and mentor each other.
"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."
"I became a member of Pando because the core mission of bringing people together who have a common passion for ecosystem building and for outdoor lifestyle is how I live my life each day and something I wanted to be a part of."
"Carta's mission is to "Create More Owners". We do this by making it easy for entrepreneurs to issue equity and manage the ownership structure of their companies. We are proud to partner with PandoLabs in supporting entrepreneurs from the earliest stages of forming their businesses to later stages and eventual exits."
"What impressed me was the way everyone I met talked about wanting to build a great startup ecosystem in the PC/SLC area by connecting people and helping one another. I became a Founding Member, met amazing people and made some great friends though PandoLabs."
"I joined Pando because I wanted to meet and support like-minded entrepreneurs in the Park City community."
"The community has been invaluable in creating relationships with other local entrepreneurs and businesses. Helping each other learn, grow, and solve challenges. Not to mention, it’s nice to have a social/support network of like-minded people, all working on creating and achieving success!"
"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."
