Become an Investor
The Joint Venture Investors Council is composed of firms, organizations, and individuals who provide financial support to the organization on an annual basis. To participate in any of Joint Venture’s programs and activities, membership in the Investors Council is required. The level of investment is determined by the size of the organization.
Investors Council members invest because they believe in the mission of Joint Venture and want to support it. Membership does not imply any exchange of goods or services, nor any of the benefits associated with traditional membership organizations, including representation, lobbying, or advocacy.
So why join? Here’s what we offer:
- Connections—to the most influential business, labor, philanthropic, education, and public sector leaders out there.
- Regional expertise—we have assembled a staff of Ph.D.s and subject-matter experts, and we leverage external networks and partner organizations.
- Credibility—our work is respected and widely cited, because it is neutral, objective, fact-based, laid out in carefully researched white papers, indicator reports, and other data sets.
- Collective action—on regional issues that make a real difference to your organization, and wouldn’t be addressed any other way.
- Clout—because we involve the region’s top leaders and speak with one voice.
