Working together to build more just, productive and resilient communities in the Pacific NW.

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.
