The Methow Investment Network connects investors who want to see their money work in a community they love with local business owners who need capital to start up or grow. Our members are residents and visitors who understand that keeping their funds local facilitates economic self-sufficiency and job growth in the Methow Valley.
Not a bank or loan fund, members do not make collective investment decisions. Instead, the network is facilitated by TwispWorks and members work directly with businesses on investment opportunities. Business opportunities are distributed to members as they are received, and members come together for business profile and networking events 3-4 times per year.
For questions about membership, business opportunities or general inquiries, please contact Don Linnertz, TwispWorks Executive Director.
Are you an entrepreneur looking for investors?
If you’re a Methow Valley entrepreneur looking for investment, Methow Investment Network members may be interested in learning more about your business and any business opportunities you have.
If you are interested in submitting a Methow Valley business opportunity for consideration, please contact the Methow Investment Network for an initial meeting. The meeting will take approximately an hour and will cover the details of what is needed to apply to the network. Please come prepared to review details of your business history, plan and financial information.
After the initial meeting, you will receive a Business Opportunity Submission Form for completion. The form will be circulated to members and will be the key document portraying your business and its readiness for investment. Once your form is received, interested members may contact you to understand the opportunity in more detail and how they might support your efforts. If enough members are interested, you may be invited to present to the Network.
Let us know if you would like to set up an initial meeting. Contact Methow Investment Network
