Criteria to join the Network:
To join the Network the first step is to complete a Venture Profile for our Venture Index. Your profile helps us match you with the right resources and opportunities. We’ll help you sharpen your profile so that it becomes a valuable, reusable, and shareable resource.
We welcome social entrepreneurs working in the U.S. early childhood space, defined as prenatal to age 5, inclusive of the adults who care for children and influence their environments. That can include parents, caregivers, educators, pediatricians, social workers, and more.
Network members may be focused on early education, early health, social services, child care, parental support / education, technology, or any other adjacent field.
The Network is open to early childhood-focused nonprofit organizations and for-profit companies of any stage (idea, early, growth, mature).
