Pipe · line. Noun. \ˈpīp-ˌlīn\ A state of development, preparation, and production.

Pipeline is a Fellowship of high-performing entrepreneurs who call the Midwest home. They have access to our national network of experts who share a passion for our Pipeline family.

Our entrepreneurs invest in their own professional development here, and also give generously of their time, talent and capital so that we can build global businesses from wherever we choose.

Pipeline takes zero equity in our Member companies, focusing on the entrepreneur first. The Fellowship year is just the beginning. Pipeline is available for life.

Pipeline entrepreneurs teach, learn, mentor and invest alongside each other at all stages of life and business. When we need a broader network, we have access to our entire national network.

Our impact after a decade of work together grows more emphatic with each new Fellowship Class and every new venture.
