The PCC was created to offer Punjabi citizens a platform to prosper — from networking, and mentoring to jobs, investments and business opportunities.
The organisation prides itself on being the only and largest of its kind for Punjabi businesses, start-ups and all professionals. And were established in the U.S in 2017 through the support of the Punjabi diaspora, which is echoed through their sentiment that they are “by the community, for the community.”
Their members have benefited from personal and professional promotion, extended their commercial relations and delivered optimal services and events in a short time period.
Outside of South Asia, London plays host to one of the oldest Indian-Punjabi communities so the England capital city presents a major milestone opportunity for both PCC and its members. They also maintain a strict policy of ensuring diversity in its groups and encourages both men and women from all backgrounds to join their committees.
Gurpreet (Gary) Pasricha, co-founder/trustee said: “PCC looks forward to an active engagement with businesses and professionals in London. We humbly request that you give the new Chapter your committed support as we work in partnership for a better economy and life.”
