Members of SCN come from a variety of professional roles, are working to build a collaborative, inclusive community, and have an attitude of giving and sharing. SCN culture emphasizes unity, respect, learning, and collegiality. We do not permit solicitation of members.
Members may apply directly themselves, or current members may refer someone to join by completing the form below on their behalf. ⠀If you nominate someone for membership, know that we strongly value diversity, and ask that you give special consideration to help us identify ecosystem builders who are of under represented gender, ethnicity, geography, etc. Thank you for completing our application form to help us learn more about your experience in building startup ecosystems.
