    Puget Sound Venture Club was started in 1985 with the sole purpose to provide a forum to review venture opportunities. Members represent personal interests and there is no pooling of funds. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, noon to 2:00 PM. Present and past members have invested in over 700 companies with a main focus on seed and early-stage companies. Members invest in companies that have the potential for 10X returns in five years. Membership in the Puget Sound Venture Club is limited to 35. Requirements for individuals are a minimum net worth of $1,000,000 and some history of venture investing, or a serious desire to make venture investments. Past and present members have invested in more than 1,150 companies representing approximately $169 million in angel investments.
