In May 2019, several dozen highly innovative emerging pet care companies became members of the Pet Care Innovation Network, sponsored by Purina.
At no cost to them, these startups will enjoy trusted access to peers from across the United States, educational content tailored to early stage companies in the $80B pet industry, networking with industry leaders, Purina executives and investors, and high impact events designed to help them grow their businesses faster. They also get free use of tools to help them understand and communicate their company’s growth to investors, advisors and others.
Members of this invitation-only network at launch include highly promising and scalable pet tech companies, food and nutrition companies, and pet services companies. All past winners of the Pet Care Innovation Prize are eligible for membership, as well as other companies nominated by network members.
The Network addresses crucial needs of entrepreneurs – industry recognition, ongoing peer support and advice from other successful founders, access to investors and potential business partners, and access to resources. Through the support of Purina, this is at no cost to the startups and doesn’t require giving up equity or any other rights, just a willingness to participate in Network activities.
