Before coming to SOCAPS' The HUB, Penelope founded Pacific Community Ventures in 1998 with the pioneering vision to invest human,intellectual and financial capital in small businesses to create opportunity and shared prosperity for economically underserved communities. That innovative nonprofit has helped to create more than 5,000 jobs for lower-income workers at 250 small businesses throughout California.
